Fourth Church of Christ Scientist is a unique building in a residential neighborhood whose houses were built after 1950. The church was built in 1912 and was originally called Lakeview Presbyterian Church. It was designed in the Gothic Revival and Craftsman styles, giving it its distinctive appearance. The Presbyterians worshipped in the church until 1950 when they constructed a new church in the neighborhood. The Church of Christ Scientist bought the church that same year and have been here ever since. Fourth Church and the rest of the neighborhood were heavily damaged during Hurricane Katrina.
