RISK - Lack of protection and condos next door, this structure may not be part of Stevens Park new Conservation District.
The Second Church of Christ Scientist started a church in Oak Cliff because First Church of Christ Scientist at Cadiz and Brower, downtown, had become too crowded. They outgrew their first structure at Tenth and Storey, where they were one of the 23 churches of Tenth St., and built this early colonial Williamsburg design on Stevens Park Golf Course in 1949. The architects were Wilson and Patterson and it cost $165,000.00 to construct.
Ten years ago, a gentleman in Kessler Park who had grown up in the church purchased the building so his mother and her friends could still go and read. One hundred years old, it is said she still lives on nearby Marydale Rd. The building is immaculate.
Zoned R7-5, all this could be today is a residence. However, when city staff was helping Stevens Park write their CD ordinance, they suggested it be left out of the Conservation District so it is not protected.
