First Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1878–1879. Northwest corner of 7th and Greene streets

This brick Eastlake church has now been painted white. The roof of the corner tower starts with four wall gables and ascends to the small open belfry, topped by its own spire roof. The exterior decoration is in brick and is sharp, right angled, and crisp. The pointed Gothic Revival windows are narrow, almost what one encounters on the walls of a castle rather than a church.
