The Residences at Holy Corners is an eight-unit, townhome-style, community nestled within the Holy Corners Historic district of the larger Central West End historic district.
"Holy Corners" acquired its name shortly after the turn of the century because of the concentration of churches that were erected at the intersection of Kingshighway and Washington Boulevards. The Residences at Holy Corners is located just west of St. John´s Methodist Church, the first and most iconic of the Holy Corners landmarks. Completed in 1902 from plans by Theodore C. Link, St. Johns Methodist Church was designed in the Italian Renaissance style using the classical elements which were popular in public building design at that time. The other five buildings that comprise the Holy Corners are: First Church of Christ (1904); the Racquet Club (1906); Second Baptist Church (1907); Temple Israel (1908); and the Tuscan Temple (1908). All six buildings in the neighborhood known as the Holy Corners Historic District were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. .
