The original building was constructed from some of the finest materials available for a total of $46,000. Built of Ionia Limestone from the Bayport quarry near Sebewaing, Michigan, the exterior is trimmed in select limestone and relief accents in terra cotta. The interior is finished with expertly hand-crafted ash, cherry, and basswood to compliment the Tiffany Co. stained glass windows. It still stands today as one of Flint’s oldest church congregations.
