City Events Center (Presbyterian Church)

-A A +A
Presbyterian Church
1886. 147 S. First Ave.

This small, steep-gabled church of pressed brick with Carpenter's Gothic details has a wooden steeple surmounting a secondary gable over the entry bay. The open belfry wears a steep pyramidal cap. Trim is simple, with individual lancet windows divided by pilasters. Following the congregation's relocation in 1987, the building was saved from demolition by the city of Brighton and adapted by the Adams County Historical Society for use as a special events center.
