Our Landmark Site
Our church building is widely recognized as one of the most architecturally significant structures in the Rochester area. Designed by Louis Kahn, it is regularly visited and studied by architects and students from around the world. Photographs and other information are available through the menu at upper right.
The extensive garden areas that surround the First Unitarian Church were developed over the past thirty years largely through the efforts of Madlyn Evans. Recently a comprehensive landscape plan was developed with the assistance of local landscape designer, Stuart MacKenzie. Volunteer gardeners provide the majority of the care of the gardens.
A brochure describing the self-guided walking tour through the Gardens of the church is available through the menu at upper right [PDF format]. Also found there are photographs of the Gardens throughout the seasons.
Memorial opportunities are available and contributions to the Landscape Fund are always welcome.
