Tuxedo Park Christian Church, Webster Groves, MO

June 13, 2018

Our roving reporter Richard Kenyon sent a batch of his recent on-line discoveries, including this charming building. It stands at the corner of Bompart Avenue and Tuxedo Blvd.

A little more sleuthing reveals that it was the Tuxedo Park Christian Church and constructed in two phases (1895 and 1908), though its not clear which of the three parts are associated with those dates. The Dutch Colonial style has been exceedingly rare in this study, so it’s interesting for that aspect alone. The possible “Akron” component is that quarter circular segment you can just see to the right of the main entrance.

Richard located the building on a site used to market churches that have closed and are for sale. Apparently this one has become a single-family home.

The cockeyed entry stair and crowding of the property line betrays a street widening at some point.
