Frank M. Riley
— 1929 —Designed with simplicity and grace, the First Church of Christ, Scientist is Georgian Revival in style, the form used for many early 20th century Christian Science churches across the country. It is the only Madison church designed by Frank Riley, one of the city's finest architects in the period revival styles. The congregation chose to locate on Wisconsin Avenue, a street that until the 1950's was lined with the steeples and domes of many of Madison's most historic churches.
