Emory United Methodist Church

Emory United Methodist Church is at 6100 Georgia Avenue NW, on a tall hill overlooking the surrounding area.  It was built in 1922 by the architectural firm of of Milburn, Heister and Company, in the Classical Revival Style.  A 1907 building behind the church, constructed in 1907, was incorporated as an annex to the building.

The building is in the shape of a cruciform, and has four large Doric columns in the front.  There are three wooden doors between the columns, surrounded by fieldstone and terracotta blocks.  The building is in the process of a major remodeling, and the church is temporarily meeting at a different location.
