Angelus Temple | Echo Park | Religion and Spirituality | General
Loading...
From an architectural standpoint, it’s hard to beat this Echo Park landmark. Completed in 1925, it's the area’s most formidable structure, a colossal house of worship crowned by a silver-painted dome. But perhaps most intriguing – more so, even, than the religious group the temple houses – is the parsonage located next to it. Once home to the Foursquare Gospel movement's founder, Aimee Semple McPherson, the world now seems to stand wonderfully quiet once the afternoon sun filters through the curtains on the lake-facing windows, into the terrible stillness of McPherson's bedroom.
