North SIde Church of Christ – Houston

This frame structure, clad in narrow-milled wood siding, has a gable roof. Simply framed windows on all sides of the plain, one and one-half story structure have been boarded up with identical narrow siding. The distinctive features of the structure are the exaggerated Missionesque parapets on the east and west elevations. When constructed, the church had seating capacity for 125 persons. City Directories list a Church of Christ at this location after 1911, but the site was not purchased by the church until 1914. The congregation relocated to a new site in 1949. Acquired in 1949 by several members of the Hoover family, this unusual building is immaculately maintained although it appears vacant.
