Earlier this week, the Historic Preservation Office sent notice that the D.C. Preservation League has filed a landmark nomination for the Kelsey Temple Church of God in Christ, which is located at 1435-37 Park Road in Columbia Heights. The building was constructed in 1921 for the Columbia Heights Christian Church, which remained there until they sold the building to the Kelsey Temple COGIC in 1958.

You can read the entire nomination here, which provides a more in-depth history of both congregations that have called this building home.
