A cross is embedded above the entrance to the First Methodist Episcopal Church at Third Street and Linden in Long Beach. The two-story, brick building is in the neoclassical style and has pilasters framing arched windows on each side that are topped with a pediment. Notices are posted on the pilasters on either side of the plain door facing the street corner. Two sailors are passing a parking meter as they walk down the street. The trees are newly planted and a one-way sign is posted below the traffic signal. The church was designed by architects, Parker O. Wright and Francis H. Gentry and built in 1924.
