First Unitarian Church, Ann Arbor

First Unitarian Church, Ann Arbor

This old-looking church sits at the corner of East Huron Street and North State Street in downtown Ann Arbor. First Unitarian Church was built in 1882 according to the project of Donaldson and Meier. The Richardsonian Romanesque structure is a bright example of this architectural style common throughout the eastern United States. It features ashlar walls, cross-gabled roof, massive corner tower with four turrets, arched openings and portico entrances. The building was purchased and reconstructed by Hobbs & Black architects in 1885, and has since remained in the same location. First Unitarian Church has been registered as a Historic Building since 1978.
