Don't expect to find anything familiar, Eames-wise, in those two churches. They look like standard Catholic church issue.

Some unique Eames touches are evident. The better of the two churches is in West Helena Arkansas. Detail carvings along the wooden pews and Charles' hand made Stations of the Cross (I think the church keeps them locked up now) Notice the globe light fixtures that have you in the darkness as you walk towards the altar and bathed in light after taking the sacrament.

Interesting to see Eames progress from the Gothic to the Romanesque -- in one year.

The simple and timeless forms, the brick masonry, and the craftwork would have appealed to the Saarinens, father and son ?
