Summary for 833 S Thistle ST S / Parcel ID unknown / Inv #

Historic Name: Unknown Common Name: New Hope Presbyterian Church
Style: Other Neighborhood: South Park
Built By: Year Built: 1911
In the opinion of the survey, this property is located in a potential historic districe (National and/or local).
South Park's oldest surviving church building is a simple interpretation of the shingle style. A reference in The Duwamish Diary states that the present [1949] primary Sunday School room was originally built by Charles Duncan for a gymnasium.
This neighborhood church is sited and scaled to exist comfortably with its residential neighbors. A rather severe gable-fronted rectangular mass is softened by an earely Gothic-like, wood shingled mass adjoining its east side. A small scale bell-cast tower rises from the shingled portion of the church, which has multilight fixed sash windows. The church and its setting contribute to the historic streetscape.
