First Church of Christ Scientist Downtown San Jose, California

Saint James Street between First and Second Streets.

 

Built in 1905, not sure how long this church has been vacant, but the First Church of Christ Scientist moved out in 1946, becoming a variety of other things since that time, according to the sign out front.

 

It is a historical landmark that is suppose to be restored and worked into a housing development that will be built next to it. That said, I'm waiting for the day that something happens to this building, since these structures tend to "disappear" when they are in the way of a housing development, like the church over on Delmas Avenue did.
