First Church of Christ, Scientist (Davenport, Iowa)

The former First Church of Christ, Scientist, located at 636 Kirkwood Boulevard, in Davenport, Iowa, United States, is an historic structure that on July 27, 1984, was added to the National Register of Historic Places. It is now the Harvest Time Family Worship Center.HistoryFirst Church was established in Davenport in 1892 by 16 practitioners as a branch of the mother church in Boston. They built this building, which was designed by the prominent Davenport architectural firm of Clausen & Clausen, in 1912. They opened a Christian Science Reading Room downtown. First Church moved in the 1970s to a new facility on Fairhaven Road in Davenport.The Harvest Time Family Worship Center was founded by the Revs. James and Cecelia Lee as the Pentecostal Deliverance Church in 1972. It was located in the 1500 block of Fillmore Street at the time. The congregation moved to this location in 1980.ArchitectureThe structure is a severe example of the Neoclassical style. The cross plan of the building is the only religious symbolism employed. It is very similar in that way to the original St. Anthony's Catholic Church (1836) downtown. The main facade is dominated by the tetrastyle temple front with columns in antis that follow the Doric order. The main entrance into the church is recessed behind the tetrastyle "screen" and it is surmounted by a fanlight. The entry itself is made up of three openings and follows a Palladian motif. The central opening features a rounded arch. At the crossing in the center of the structure is a polygonal belvedere. The wood and concrete structure is covered with stucco.
