Each of the four faiths represented worshipped in a medium-sized, well-designed, and well-maintained church building. Because of its fine examples of religious architecture, including High Victorian Gothic, late Gothic Revival, Tudor Revival, and Contemporary styles, the district was listed in the National Register on March 1, 2010 The churches have in common masonry construction, whether it is brick, stone, or a combination of the two, and use of stained glass windows.
