Congregation Mickve Israel, completed in 1878, is the only Gothic style Synagogue in America and is located on Monterey Square. Wesley Monumental Church is a Gothic-revival style church memorializing the founders of Methodism. It dates from 1868 and is particularly noted for its magnificent stained-glass windows.
