Salt Lake City Presbyterian Church
Salt Lake City in Utah, USA: the First Presbyterian Church.

The third oldest religious structure in the state of Utah is the First Presbyterian Church. It was built in 1903 with red sandstoned quarried from the nearby Red Butte Gardens. It was modeled after the Carlisle Cathedral in England. The East, West and South sides of the building feature stand glass scenes from Christs time on earth: The Manger, Gethsemane, and the Empty Tomb.

Salt Lake City Cathedral of the Madeleine
Salt Lake City in Utah, USA: the Cathedral of the Madeleine.

This is an amazing sandstone structure. Its exterior is fashioned in the Romanesque architectural style, the interior is Gothic. In a US City that has some pretty amazing religious architecture, the Cathedral of the Madeleine is far more European than it is American. The interior features high arches and brightly covered frescoes, more akin to the old European churches. It is featured in both the National and State Registers of Historic places.
