Maddox Avenue Baptist Church – Maddox

Morgan Memorial Baptist Church purchased two adjacent lots here in 1936 and in the fall of 1937 began construction of a sandstone-veneered sanctuary, completed the following year. The church reorganized itself on August 8, 1938, as Maddox Avenue Baptist Church. A two-story annex, also clad in sandstone, was erected west of the original structure in 1941. The buildings have had several owners since the mid 1950s, and now are used by another Baptist congregation. The use of sandstone as a veneer on modest buildings was widespread in rural Tarrant County in the 1930s and 1940s, and relatively uncommon in Fort Worth. These buildings are among the best examples of the practice in the survey area. The resources on this site have been demolished.
