The former Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, now known as the Internet Archive, is a historic Christian Science church building located at 300 Funston Avenue, corner of Clement Street, in the Richmond District of San Francisco, California. Built in 1923, it was designed by noted San Francisco architect Carl Werner in the Classical Revival style of architecture.
Due to the dwindling size of its congregation and the increased cost of maintaining such a large building, the building was sold in 2009 to the Internet Archive. The organization chose the church based on its Greek Revival design, which resembles the logo of the Internet Archive. The last church service was held on Thanksgiving Day of that year. Although no longer listed in the Christian Science Journal, Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist is still listed by the California Secretary of State as being active with an office in Hillsborough.
