Also know as the Pioneer Congregational Church this house of worship was built in 1920’s at a cost of  $170,000 . The concrete exterior was done in the neo-Gothic style that was projected to honor the population of European pioneers who settled the Sacramento area.

The structure consists of a main floor and balcony, stained glass windows throughout, and a choir loft with a pipe organ in the chancel. The two story, 15,500 square foot administrative wing was remodeled in 1998 and contains offices, meeting and classrooms, a fellowship hall and a kitchen

This project although designed by Hemmings and Starks, was completed after Hemmings death in 1924.

    Thanks Chris, your right. It appears the map was not correct as well. I have fixed both issues. Thanks for checking out our site!

    A missing Hemmings project from your site, possibly: I learned last night that he had designed the old firehouse in the Boulevard Park neighborhood (exactly contemporary with its companion building by Rudolph Herold on Poverty Ridge). The plans were approved in June 1911 and the buildings were nearly done by December of that year. There is a great photo of the firehouse in progress in the Dec. 9, 1911 issue of The Sacramento Bee. The building originally was known as Chemical Engine Co. No. 3, and the address was then 417 20th Street (between D and E). I enjoy your site! Thanks, CTL
