Lonely Planet review for First Church of Christ Scientist
On the southeast end of People's Park stands Bernard Maybeck's impressive 1910 First Church of Christ Scientist, which uses concrete and wood in its blend of Craftsman, Asian and Gothic influences. Maybeck was a professor of architecture at UC Berkeley and designed San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts, plus many landmark homes in the Berkeley Hills. Free tours are given the first Sunday of every month at 12:15.
