This small church is the only place of worship in the Bay area to be included on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1895, by a team of architects that included Bernard Maybeck, a German immigrant who specialized in arts and craft architectural masterpieces. It was named after Emanuel Swedenborg, a Swedish Christian scientist who created a belief system that would re-connect people with Christ. You won't find fancy gold domes and ornately decorated auditoriums at this church. Instead,you will find a quaint building that mirrors the beauty of nature, as the architects were inspired by the rugged, raw, organic look of the wild.
