Mount Vernon Square

Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church

Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church, at 900 Massachusetts Avenue NW, was built in 1917. By 2005, the church building needed extensive repairs and the congregation was declining, so the church partnered with a developer, selling part of its property for a 12-story office building and completely restoring the church. The church owns a part of the office building, using it for administrative and gathering spaces, and Wesley Theological Seminary uses part of the space. A 5-story glass atrium connects the church with the new office building.
