Crescent Temple exterior

Another building in Trenton that is elaborately decorated with tiles and terracotta produced in Trenton is the Crescent Temple, constructed in 1929. Expected to hold 4,000 Shriners, the building was richly constructed with Wurtemburg limestone from Elwood City, Ohio, Italian Travertine marble and American walnut. Vitreous floor tile was supplied by Crescent Tile Co, the face and common brick came from the New Jersey Brick and Supply Co, and the plumbing equipment was Maddock Durock. Although Mueller Mosaic Company is identified as the source of the faience tiles, the maker of the terra cotta ornament remains unidentified.Crescent Mosque Mueller detail
