Moneta Presbyterian Church

1842 W Gardena Blvd, Gardena, CA 90247

This old photograph shows The Moneta (now Gardena) Presbyterian church. The church was built in 1922 and still stands as the Gardena Valley Church of Christ. The architecture is so simple, yet very beautiful. Thanks to Ben Taniguchi of Galvin Preservation for this picture.

This is what the building looks like today. As you can see, only small changes to the exterior are noticeable. The sign on the tower shows the "new" name of the church, and small support columns hold the overhangs by the doors. The building can use some TLC, but overall, it is very similar to the way it was 85 years ago.
