Wall of Welcome Tiles - 2

In the early 1950s many returning GIs bought the homes and large lots in this area, and soon the neighborhood was full of young children. To sustain these families, many churches were built. By 1954, eleven churches had been established here, often beginning in vacant stores or private homes. Some have celebrated fiftieth anniversaries. Woodrow Avenue is often nicknamed "Church Row."

Brentwood: Faith Lutheran, First Assembly Church of God, First Cumberland Presbyterian, First Unitarian Universalist, Grace Church of the Nazarene, Hope Chapel, Koenig Lane Christian Church, Church of Christ, and Northwest baptist.

Crestview: Austin Korean Presbyterian, Crestview United Methodist, Crestview Baptist, Austin Bible Church, Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, and St. Louis Catholic.
