St. George Church
Corner of 7th and Elm Street
Bristow, OK

St. George's Church was built of red brick in 1903 in a wilderness known as Indian Territory that later became Creek County, Oklahoma.

The lots of the church were originally awarded to Creek Indian, Ollie Mayes, who sold it to the Indian Territory Diocese of the Episcopal Church on June 5, 1903 for $200.

Changing hands a few times, the Montford Jones Foundation purchased the church in 1985 for $20,000 from the city of Bristow with the understanding the church is not to be sold.

Ceilings in the builidng are wooden beam held together by metal crafted by a local blacksmith. Pews in the church are more than 100 years old and still contains the original organ,old when donated, which may have been manufactured in Utah.

St. George's Church is now used for weddings and as a church museum.
