Centre Street United Methodist Church, Centre & Main Streets, Nantucket, Nantucket County, MA
Significance: A visual and social landmark, this Church contains some original elements despite later alterations, and reflects the changing tastes in nineteenth century ecclesiastical architecture. / The Methodist Church is a typical 19th century building for worship and assembly purposes. It was built in 1832 and extensively modified in 1840 and 1940 to meet changes in taste and function. Modifications include changes in roof structure, addition of a Greek Revival portico and ornament, and changes in seating and interior spaces. The 1823 hip roof finish and structure, an excellent example of mortise and tenon construction, remain below the 1840 gable addition.
