The Boston Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church is architecturally significant in four areas. First, it is an outstanding example of the Art Deco style; second, it exemplifies the period's trend toward the application of new structural materials--steel--to the construction of a particular type of building, the skyscraper, providing a rare example of an architect's application of this concept and material to a religious facility; third, it exemplifies an emerging trend in the functional design of churches--that being the elevation of educational facilities to an almost equal prominence with the sanctuary or worship center itself; and fourth, it is significant for the architect's use of artistic productions, in the form of terra-cotta sculptures created by sculptor Robert Garrison for the building's exterior.
