Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2272
Building/structure dates: 1923 initial construction
Significance: Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, was church home to its congregation from its construction, between 1920 and 1923, to the date of sale of the property, April 15, 1984. This building was a familiar sight to the people of Oakland, being visible from all shores of Lake Merritt. It is directly across the lake from the Camron-Stanford House, the Alameda County Court House, and the Oakland Public Library, Main Building. The Eastern facade of the building is seen from many blocks of East Fourteenth Street. This church building was significant because of its association with the congregation named above. Its style resembles many other Christian Science church buildings. It has been considered architecturally significant by the Oakland Citywide Preliminary Architectural and Historical Survey, conducted by the City Planning Department, and the Oakland Cultural Heritage Survey (co-sponsored by the Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board, and the Oakland Heritage Alliance). However, a vote of the Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board of 1987 decided against the recording of this building on the Landmarks Preservation List.
