Category:Mount Olivet Evangelical Lutheran Church (Washington, D.C.)

English: Mount Olivet Evangelical Lutheran Church is located at 1306 Vermont Avenue NW in the Logan Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The building, designed by architect Rufus G. Russell in the High Victorian Gothic style, was originally home to the Vermont Avenue Christian Church when construction was completed in 1884. It was renamed to Garfield Memorial Church in honor of former member, President James A. Garfield, who was assassinated in 1881. That congregation is now known as National City Christian Church. The Mount Olivet Evangelical Lutheran Church congregation purchased the building in 1953. The building is listed on the District of Columbia Inventory of Historic Sites and is also a contributing property to the Logan Circle Historic District and Greater Fourteenth Street Historic District.
