Arlington Heights Methodist Church – Camp Bowie

Arlington Heights Methodist Church was formally organized in 1923. Continuing growth of the congregation led to the 1928-29 construction of the Religious Education Building which housed church services until 1951. Of buff brick with cast-stone trim, the Tudor Revival structure stands two stories over a high basement. Steeply pitched cross gables and gabled wall dormers add variation to the roofline. In 1951, a new church sanctuary and bell tower were completed by architect Birch D. Easterwood and contractor James T. Taylor and Sons, Inc. The large, Gothic Revival-Moderne style structures are constructed of reinforced concrete with yellow brick veneer and cast-stone trim. The complex is an impressive contributor to the Camp Bowie Boulevard streetscape.
