Historic photos of the Baha’i House of Worship for North America Part 1: Day 5 – Baha’i Blogging Challenge

Back when I worked at the Baha’i National Center in 2012, I found this series of photos in a stack of items that were being given away. I decided to scan them in and post them, but then I never actually shared them widely. I split it into different posts because they’re from different time frames. I love seeing the progression of the House of Worship over time, and it really helped give me a sense of how long it took to construct this building.

  1. I can scarcely believe that these photos were being given away! It was a good instinct of yours to scan and preserve them for the future.
