No. 18. First Methodist sets its legacy in stone, pun intended

Churches and other places of worship sometimes have exemplary design. First Methodist Church on South Beretania is one such example. In addition to having a large and very well-designed flame logo on the street side of its building, it's distinguished also with interesting modern architecture, and this gorgeous sign cast in concrete placed in a less-than-prominent location on the side of the main building. I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for letters cast in stone; it implies a sort of permanence — a subtle gesture that says, "Now that we're here, we ain't going anywhere."
