DATE - 1935

The pews are made of oak, in an arts and craft style, with one unique Eames touch: there’s extra wood at the back of each seat, providing gentle lumbar support. 

Additional Information

Built early in Charles Eames’s career, St. Mary’s Catholic Church is one of only two churches that he designed in Arkansas. It was erected in 1935 at 301 West Highland in Paragould, Arkansas. Stylistically, St. Mary’s is a modern reinterpretation of Romanesque Revival architecture—a decision Charles made because it allowed him to fulfill the congregation’s desire for a traditional church within a designated budget.
