Ash Crescent Methodist Church – Ash Crescent

Ash Crescent Methodist Church was organized in 1941 from congregants of the former Glenwood Methodist Church. This quaint sandstone-veneered church was constructed the following year. The Gothic-influenced design features a symmetrical façade and an arched entrance opening flanked by buttresses. A wing was added to the northeast corner in 1952 and a fellowship hall constructed in 1955. In 1966, the property was purchased by St. Stephen’s Missionary Baptist Church. This congregation was formerly located on the city’s North Side. The windows have been altered and a metal canopy placed above the entrance. The church is another interesting example of the use of stone veneer on a World War II-era building constructed in the eastern portion of Fort Worth’s Southside. It may be eligible for the National Register for its architectural significance.
