Berkeley Methodist Church
|Address:||5200 W. 43rd Ave., Denver, 80212|
The church is named for the community known as Berkeley and was officially organized in February 1891. In 1889 a small group met in a gospel tent on Sheridan near Oak (43rd Avenue). The present building was dedicated in 1892 and is the oldest church building in the area "still in use" in 1995. It is located in the same area that the gospel tent was said to have been. The Berkeley Annex School of Wheat Ridge District #8 met in a rented room of the church in 1891-1895. A Landmark designation pending 3/7/2005.
