New lights in old lamps

The sign in front of the former Calvary Presbyterian Church identifies it now as The Old Church Concert Hall. Their website includes a virtual tour. In addition to having the 1948 exterior architectural elements, cresting and finials now run along the roof line, probably an original feature.

Down SW Clay Street you can see another white, gothic-style church. I don't know what it was originally, but it is now identified as Portland Korean Church, permanently closed.
