St Ahab’s—Context


Christ the King occupies the southeast “church lot” as part of Agincourt’s civic core. In this plat map (one of the first drawings prepared as part of the seminar that resulted in exhibit #1), the Roman Catholic lot is the block just southeast of “The Academy” which itself is immediately east of “The Commons”, one of the two green squares at the center of the original plat. Got it?

The block has an unusual shape and includes lots for both the church and others that are part of the the Southeast Quadrant. That portion owned by the Catholics measures 320 feet N-S and 290 feet E-W, with a corner nicked off. Adjacent buildings include houses to the east and the public library on the south [the red rectangle]. North, across Agincourt Avenue, is the Episcopal Church of St Joseph the Carpenter.
