Seattle First Baptist Church
Seattle First Baptist at the corner of Harvard Avenue and Seneca Street, built in 1912 was one of the most expensive projects of the time. Except for terra-cotta pinnacles that were replaced with fiberglass replicas after the 2001 quake (when one pinnacle went through the roof), the exterior hasn’t changed much. Its main feature is a majestic steeple typical of English gothic medieval architecture that rises 16 stories — one of few in Seattle so prominent, and so old.
