First Presbyterian Church

Located at the southwest corner of the Capitol facing Union Square, the church addresses its corner site with an angled entry and tower. The irregularly shaped red-brick building exhibits characteristics of the Romanesque Revival style with its heavy, asymmetrical massing and rounded arches. The open bell tower, surrounded by small copper-capped pinnacles, is particularly commanding.

Date: 1900
