The Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington (UUCA) is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places — in recognition of its mid-century architectural importance and the fact that it was designed by a renowned architect of the time, Charles M. Goodman. Arlington has more than 60 sites on the National Register. Preservation Arlington applauds the recognition of this building, its design and history as being important to this story of Arlington and Virginia.
From the County Press Release:
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington (UUCA) was designed by modernist architect Charles M. Goodman. The sanctuary building was constructed from 1962-1964. The building remains an excellent example of a Modern Movement church that was built for a rapidly growing congregation. The UUCA reflects the pinnacle of Goodman’s interpretation of his modern aesthetic for ecclesiastical architecture, with a focus on rational design and clean lines. Goodman also designed the original Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Arlington, as well as the majority of the Hollin Hills neighborhood in Fairfax County.
