Walton United Methodist Church, BE-914

Walton United Methodist Church

The church was constructed on South Main Street in Walton in 1922.

It may be the county's most architecturally distinctive house of worship of the 20th century. Its design is an unexpected blend of Tudor Revival and Craftsman elements, with Sullivanesque floral details. The main block is a cubical brick structure under a very low-pitched hipped roof with overhanging eaves. Entry is through a gabled portal faced with a false front veneered with stone; it features a lancet-arched doorway, battered walls and a stepped parapet. While the church's unique design suggests it was constructed with the aid of an architect, this information does not appear in church records.
