#902 First Unitarian Church
This building, designed by George W. Page in 1891, became the permanent home of a congregation that first met in city hall in 1866. A version of Richardsonian Romanesque style, the innovative structure withstood the earthquake of 1906 and became a shelter for the injured. In 1906, the church women organized San Jose's first day nursery.
