The 1931 Advent of the Church of St. James (238)

September 11, 1931
“Redevelopment” affecting historic structures is stirring in several places in Davis, including the large holding fronting Fifth Street between C and D streets.

The Church of St. James, built in 1931, is at the northeast corner of Fifth and C and is a piece of that larger holding.

Prompted by an inquiry, I looked at my photocopies of 1931 Davis Enterprise pages and found three stories on the advent of that church that I reproduce here.

I cannot say this is all the coverage of this building in 1931, but if it is, it is oddly minimalist relative to the attention the Enterprise gave to the advent of the church just across Fifth Street from it.
