Regarding Gloria Dei Evangelical Lutheran Church. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "This church was designed in the late Gothic Revival style by an unknown architect. The original section features pointed-arch windows, brick buttresses, and lead muntins in its windows, as well as a unique tapered tower with a stepped, Flemish-style parapet. The building was built for a Swedish Lutheran congregation and later served St. Paul's A.M.E. Church from 1965 until 1997. Local architect Grover Lippert designed the two-story Sunday School addition in 1957. In 1997 the building was converted to condominiums."
