The results are in, and the winner of our Visitacion Valley public voting campaign is: St. James Presbyterian Church! Designed by trailblazing architect Julia Morgan, the current church building was dedicated in 1923. Its eye-catching stained glass window, depicting the Parable of the Sower, was relocated from a church in the Sierra Nevada foothills sometime after the building’s construction…or so the story goes.
This is the people’s choice, and we thank everyone who voted and shared this campaign. We are working on next steps for landmarking, with a goal of eventually bringing all three choices forward as potential landmark candidates (St. James, Fire Station #44, the Log Cabin). Stay tuned as we continue to boost recognition for historic resources in Visitacion Valley!
