1895. 1100 Church St.

This wood-framed Gothic Revival church, replacing an 1867 rock church, has a large gabled nave with a corner steeple on a two-stage square base. Elaborate wood tracery fills the windows. The church bell is from the church's former building and, before that, from a Colorado River steamboat.

A number of significant houses are located nearby on Church Street, including the Allen-Bell House (c. 1850) at number 1408, a one-story Greek Revival frame structure with unusual vertical board-and-batten siding; the Classical Revival H. B. Combs House (1912) at number 1208; and the Hall-Sayers-Perkins House (1910) by N. B. Tanner at number 1307.
