University Methodist Church

1907, Frederick Mann. 2409 Guadalupe St.

Churches catering to students and faculty were among the first to replace the residential buildings on Guadalupe Street as the university grew in the early 1900s. This church of limestone with a terra-cotta tile roof predates the University of Texas buildings of this same style, a testament to Mann's foresight.

After World War II other congregations built nearby, including University Avenue Church of Christ (1949, 1957, Niggli and Gustafson) at 1903 University Avenue, and, at number 2007, University Christian Church (1954, Robert L. White).
