"Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church, the most exuberant Gothic church in Baltimore, was designed by the Baltimore firm of Dixon and Carson and built in 1872 by a wealthy congregation. It was dubbed “A Cathedral of Modernism” for its use of Gothic forms decorated with symbols from nature of flowers, birds, and animals.The polychrome exterior is made of four different types of stone, the towers are asymmetrical, and the exterior is sumptuously decorated.The less flamboyant interior has walls painted to look like stone, simple floral stained glass windows, and flower-carved walnut pews."
