One of the first privately owned buildings to be designated a landmark, the Swedenborgian Church is a product of the 19th century Bay Area radicals. The building aims to bring the thriving nature from outside to the inside. The legendary landscape painter, William Keith, painted four murals of the changing Californian seasons on the north wall. The roof of the church is held up by eight large untrimmed tree trunks from the Madrone Trees of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Instead of standard pews, there are 70 handmade maple chairs, with no nails.
