After a dispute with Echo Park evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson in the late 1930s, Harriet A. Jordan, Sister Aimee’s former business manager, served in later years as the pastor of her own small church a few blocks away on Silver Lake Boulevard. Calvary College Church is long gone (Rev. Jordan died in 1955, according to the L.A. Times) but the church building on the 800 block of Silver Lake Boulevard is still there and has been converted into a private home. That 1,800-square foot home – complete with church steeple and bell – is now on the market at an asking price of $648,000, according to Redfin.
The listing does not mention the 1938-building’s religious past or the fact that it is the only building located on a small triangular island at Silver Lake Boulevard and Parkman Avenue. Instead, the listing focuses on what is the holy trinity for many of today’s buyers: concrete floors, an open floor plan and “professional grade appliances.”
