Long Description:
NRHP Nomination Form

"Saints Cyril and Methodius Church is a Romanesque Revival structure of grand proportions that dominates the surrounding countryside. As is typical of Romanesque Revival buildings, it features a profusion of forms and contrasting materials and colors. Basically rectangular in plan, the church is constructed of red brick and accented with pinnacles and buttresses, by the use of cut stone, and by various geometric patterns done in buff and gray brick. An arcaded portico runs across the front of the building forming a support for the soaring, square tower with octagonal spire which rises above the entrance. A semicircular apse protrudes from the back of the structure. Arched openings of various proportions are used on all sides of the building, some of which are connected with string courses and hood molds in a checkerboard pattern of gray and buff brick. Stained glass fills the arched windows. A dentil course of contrasting brick runs along the sides of the building, with a diamond motif of buff brick occurring above that; a stone corbel table crowns the front facade."
