This image gives little impression of how large and impressive the
First Presbyterian church really is. It occupies most of a city block,
but is obscured by foliage during half the year so it is difficult
to photograph. The oldest portion of the building was erected in
the 1860s, I believe, and there have been several additions—in 1867,
1871 and 1883. Because of the many architectural details described
Gothic, that is an apt characterization of the church. The congregation
was organized in 1853.
