Lutheran Memorial Church, design submission only (90)1226 Vermont Avenue, NW (Thomas Circle)
Cluss's account for July 1, 1866 shows an "unpaid and unsettled account against J.R. Elvans and eventually by work done towards [Lutheran] Memorial Church". Also, Cluss made a drawing of the proposed Lutheran Memorial Church at that time. But obviously, he did not get the commission. Lutheran Memorial Church was finally built in 1870-73 by architect Judson York.
In the same year 1866, Cluss designed a Residence for John R. Elvans (see No. 68).
