Pink Church

This is the steeple of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Chapel on Cherry Avenue in historic downtown Flagstaff. Although a church has been on this site in some form since the late 1800s, this building was built in May 1930 from local malapai stone donated by the church's parishioners. Around town it's known as the "Pink Church" because of the light pink color of the bricks they used in its construction.
