The First Congregational United Church of Christ is eligible locally for the National Register under Criterion C for its Tudor Revival architecture. It is a significant example of ecclesiastical architecture in the Tudor Revival style in South Dakota. Finished in 1949, it also represents a later generation church built post-1915 in South Dakota. Later generation churches exhibit an increased focus on stylistic interpretation of religion and a commitment to creating impressive houses of worship.
