Glenmont Historic Resources

The County Council took action to designate the Georgia Avenue Baptist Church a historic site on the Master Plan for Historic Preservation. This action was part of the Glenmont Sector Plan update.


31/46 Georgia Avenue Baptist Church, 12525 Georgia Ave


Georgia Avenue Baptist Church is a noteworthy example of mid-century modern religious architecture.  The main auditorium, designed by architect Theodore Bennett, is banked into the sloping land, and features asymmetrical glass window walls.  The education wing, designed by Vosbeck-Ward & Associates, is sheathed with TECFAB panels, prefabricated concrete perlite panels which represent local technology and innovation.  The congregation has a long history in the community. The Maryland Historical Trust finds the Georgia Avenue Baptist Church is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
