Why You Should Go...

This treasure of 19th-century architecture, designed by Baltimore architect Thomas Dixon and constructed of Prairie Limestone in the Gothic Style, was built in 1869. Since that time the exterior of the church has remained essentially unchanged. Listed as a City Landmark in 1971, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. The sanctuary, located on the second level, seats over 1200. Gothic arches, narrow windows, and the original black walnut pews emphasize its Victorian origin. A large social hall with commercial kitchen is found on the lower level. The building also houses a chapel, four large meeting rooms, several offices, a gymnasium, and an apartment. During World War II over 1400 weddings were performed on this site. Today Centenary is home to an active United Methodist Congregation celebrating diversity and to several start-up businesses. The Michael W. Tooley Honorary Labyrinth and Prayer Garden in front of the church opens daily to the public.
