CHURCH MISSIONS HOUSE
(now Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies)
281 Park Avenue South
Architect: Robert Gibson
1892-94

Church Missions House

This magnificent steel-framed building, with its light-hued stone street facade, is a designated individual landmark. The building was designed to house the offices of the Episcopal Church's mission activities. The architect was a talented designer with the ability to create successful buildings in many different styles: the Church Missions House is modeled on the Renaissance guild halls of Flemish citiesl his St. Michael's Episcopal Church on Amsterdam Avenue and West 99th Street is a dramatic Romanesque Revival structure; the Morton Plant House (now Cartier's) on Fifth Avenue and East 52nd Street is an Italian Renaissance-inspired dwelling; while Gibson's most famous building, West End Collegiate Church on West End Avenue and West 77th Street is an adaptation of the Dutch Renaissance Butcher's Market in the city of Haarlem.
