2019:
The Hopewell Baptist Church, aka the Church of Edmond, resembles a concrete teepee. It was designed by Bruce Goff in 1948 and completed in 1951. The church was built by oil field and construction workers using steel tubing from oil field sites. The building has been vacant since 1989 and was nearly demolished. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Hopewell Heritage Foundation is raising money for the building's restoration. In 2013, a new roof was installed. The interior is now being restored. The building will house the Deer Creek Event Center. For more, see this website. [map]
