Road Name History:
A church building or church house, often simply called a church, is a building used for Christian religious activities, particularly for worship services. The term in its architectural sense is most often used by Christians to refer to their religious buildings, but it is sometimes used (by analogy) to refer to buildings of other religions. In traditional Christian architecture, the church is often arranged in the shape of a Christian cross. When viewed from plan view the longest part of a cross is represented by the aisle and the junction of the cross is located at the altar area.

Towers or domes are often added with the intention of directing the eye of the viewer towards the heavens and inspiring church visitors. Modern church buildings have a variety of architectural styles and layouts; many buildings that were designed for other purposes have now been converted for church use; and, similarly, many original church buildings have been put to other uses.

The earliest identified Christian church was a house church founded between 233 and 256. From the 11th through the 14th centuries, a wave of building of cathedrals and smaller parish churches occurred across Western Europe. A cathedral is a church, usually Roman Catholic, Anglican, Oriental Orthodox or Eastern Orthodox, housing a cathedra, the formal name for the seat or throne of a bishop.

Brand/Importer Information:
Downtown Deco produces a line of finely detailed structure kits. The kits include beautifully detailed Hydrocal castings, plastic Grandt Line doors and windows, full color signs and complete, easy to understand painting & aging instructions. Some kits also include laser cut stencils for painting the large signs on the sides of the structures. These kits are unique in the fact that the master patterns are all hand carved, brick by brick and stone by stone. This gives the buildings a much more realistic look than mass produced plastic or resin kits because it allows me to add much more detail and character to the castings. A former professional Hollywood Scenic Artist, Randy Pepprock founded the company in 1993 after relocating from Los Angeles California.
