  McFarlin Memorial Methodist Church
by mrclay2000

Dedicated in 1924, the McFarlin Memorial Methodist Church is the most handsome religious structure in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. Built of Indiana limestone and financed by an oilman whose only real tie to Norman stems from the burial of his son here, this Gothic marvel surprisingly remains nowhere on the national register of historic sites. Just three blocks north of the University of Oklahoma campus and facing southward, perhaps the better to receive its original congregation, there is no more stately Gothic edifice within 100 miles.

Address: 419 S University Blvd
