It was deemed significant for its architecture. The Presbyterian church was designed in "Spanish Eclectic" style with Byzantine influences as in the Hagia Sophia, by Sacramento architects Dean and Dean. It has a bell tower and tiled dome. It is constructed of reinforced concrete with stucco covering and decorations made of pre-cast cement.[2]
