Creek County Church Listed in National Register of Historic Places

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Historical Society and State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) are pleased to announce the National Register of Historic Places designation for the following properties in Oklahoma. The National Register of Historic Places is our nation’s official list of properties significant in our past.

Creek County
St. George Episcopal Church
148 W. 7th St., Bristow

Constructed circa 1904, St. George Episcopal Church is located on a corner lot in Bristow, Creek County. It is significant as a Late Gothic Revival style religious building constructed within the first decade of Bristow’s founding. Affectionately known today as the “Little Church,” St. George Episcopal Church is owned by the City of Bristow and is available for public use.

Listing in the National Register of Historic Places is an honorific designation that provides recognition, limited protection and, in some cases, financial incentives for these important properties. The SHPO identifies, evaluates and nominates properties for this special designation.

The State Historic Preservation Office is a division of the Oklahoma Historical Society. The mission of the Oklahoma Historical Society is to collect, preserve and share the history and culture of the state of Oklahoma and its people. Founded in 1893 by members of the Territorial Press Association, the OHS maintains museums, historic sites and affiliates across the state. Through its research archives, exhibits, educational programs and publications the OHS chronicles the rich history of Oklahoma. For more information about the OHS, please visit www.okhistory.org.
