Am I nuts, or did the very beautiful St. James Episcopal Church used to be a lovely soft pink instead of the beige it is now?

We don’t like to pass judgment on personal sanity here, but the true color of the facade of St. James Episcopal Church is a light, sandy beige.

The church renovated the stucco on its tower earlier this year and matched the color to the rest of its buildings.

Another downtown church with a slightly pink facade in a certain light is St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church on Market and Sixth streets.

“We worked very hard to have that color match the rest of the church,” said Dean Gornto, St. James parish administrator. “But depending on the sunlight and time of day, the building can take on a pinkish tint. The light does play tricks on your eyes, especially in the evening.”
