Woodstock Christian Church

-A A +A
1930, Mims, Speake and Company. 109 S. Muhlenberg St.

Woodstock Christian Church is reminiscent of medieval churches in Italy. The church is constructed of random-sized cut stone in various shades of gold and brown, which gives the walls an appealing ornamental quality. Massive stone buttresses support the walls. Highlighting the front gable is a rose window with Gothic tracery encircled by corbeled brick courses, and a low, projecting portico has a parapeted gable and pointed-arched doors. The small church lot is defined by a low stone wall topped with brick coping.
