Maywood Presbyterian Church, 400 Northeast Ninth Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, OK
Significance: Architecturally, the Maywood Presbyterian Church is significant as a good example of Victorian Romanesque ecclesiastical styling with elements of Gothic Revival. Once a popular style, buildings with this rich combination of arches, towers, decorative excess, and brick veneer are rapidly disappearing in Oklahoma City. The church building also is significant for historic reasons. It was one of Oklahoma City's first suburban churches, built in an undeveloped addition more than a mile from the downtown business district, and it stands as the physical legacy of one small congregation's dramatic commitment to building their own place of worship. In May of 1985 the Maywood Presbyterian Church was declared eligible for the National Register of Historic Places by the Office of Historic Preservation.
