First Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1928, P. G. Silber Company. 801 N. St. Mary's St.

Silber, a German-born architect who practiced in San Antonio, designed the major extant 1920s church in Beeville (W. C. Stephenson's 1927 church for St. Joseph's, Beeville's oldest Catholic parish, was demolished in the early 1990s). The church and rear educational building are in a suburban rendition of neo-Gothic popular in the 1920s, executed in buff brick and limestone, a material-color combination redolent of San Antonio. Across the street at 800 N. St. Mary's is a one-story, stucco-faced, flat-roofed bungalow of the 1920s by W. C. Stephenson.
