Madison’s Luther Memorial Church was added to the National Register of Historic Places, according to the Wisconsin Historical Society.
The church, located at 1021 University Ave., is known for its Neo-Gothic Revival style architecture, historical society spokeswoman Kara O’Keeffe said. The style’s characteristics can be seen in the church’s steeply pitched roof, buttresses and pointed-arch openings.
“This stunning church stands apart in the community as a preeminent example of the Neo-Gothic Revival style in Madison,” O’Keeffe said.
The church congregation, which was founded in 1907, moved into the then-newly constructed church in 1923, according to the Luther Memorial website.
The register is the official list of historic sites and structures in the nation that are considered worthy of preservation, O’Keeffe said. The register is maintained by the National Park Service.
The church had been added to the state’s Register of Historic Places in December.
Luther Memorial Church is a product of the renowned Claude & Starck architectural firm.
