3927 Marconi Ave, Sacramento, CA

With Don Thaden

Extensive exterior modification, though recognizable features remain. Interior condition unknown (likely gutted -- now a gymnasium)

From the Sacramento Bee - 11/16/1957
"UNDER CONSTRUCTION - This drawing by the architectural firm of Sparks and Thaden shows the Arcade Baptist Church as it will appear when completed at 3927 Marconi Avenue. The structure, which will have a seating capacity of 900 persons, will contain 13,744 square feet of floor area. In addition to the sanctuary, it will house offices, the pastor's study, a choir room, prayer room, baptistry, dressing rooms and a youth activity center. The cost of construction is estimated at more than $100,000. Considerable work will be done by volunteers. The Rev. Lee W. Toms is pastor of the Arcade Baptist church."
