First Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1924, Craighill and Cardwell. 408 N. Jefferson Ave.

Pulaski's most architecturally sophisticated religious building is this large brick Romanesque Revival church composed of a cross-gabled sanctuary with an additional rear cross-gabled two-story educational section. A triple-arched arcade marks the principal entrance and a triple-arched window is in the gable above. The prominent four-stage square corner tower, inspired by Italian Romanesque towers, repeats the triple-arched theme in its belfry and concludes with a tiled pyramidal roof.
