As mentioned, Unity Temple - OP - FLW


My "church" as a kid - North Shore Unitarian

(Jim Freazier on Flickr)
The inset windows made it very easy to climb, the skylight unfortunately allowed our parents to see us up on the roof during service.

And another very climbable church, from my hometown of Waukegan - St Anastasia.
Construction 1963

Locally, I like the National Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak in Metro Detroit:

Also, not necessarily huge, but I have a thing for the gothic and romanesque catholic churches in around downtown Detroit...

LOL, Harry, I'm not at all surprised you were raised as a Unitarian. For some reason you just seem like one to me. Haha.

My mom's service at the Unitarian Church - many spoke of how she and her friends were such rabble rousers protesting atmospheric testing of nukes, the Vietnam War, and generally for the environment.

Note the Saturn-V in the stained glass.
