First Presbyterian Church (Dallas, Texas)

First Presbyterian Church of Dallas is a historic congregation at 408 Park Avenue in the Farmers Market District of downtown Dallas, Texas (USA). The current building is a contributing property in the Harwood Historic District and a Dallas Landmark. The congregation was founded in 1856 as the first U.S. (Southern) Presbyterian Church organized in Dallas, and is the mother church from which many other Presbyterian churches in the area have stemmed.HistoryFirst Presbyterian Church of Dallas was founded February 3, 1856, by the Rev. Robert Hamilton Byers, stated supply pastor for Presbyterian churches in Rusk and Henderson counties. The church began with eleven members. It lacked a formal place of worship so members met at various times in private homes, a blacksmith shop, a lumber yard, the courthouse, and a printing shop.In 1873 the congregation erected its first owned building at Elm and Ervay streets. Its second home was built in 1882 at Harwood and Main streets, the first brick church in Dallas. By 1897 this structure had been enlarged and so extensively remodeled that it was considered to be a new (third) building. The style was Victorian eclectic.The present sanctuary and Harwood Street Educational Building at Harwood and Wood, the congregation's fourth home, were built in 1911-12 by the Alex Watson Construction Company and opened on March 2, 1913. The Greek Revival church edifice was designed by C.D. Hill, a prominent Dallas architect. The Corinthian columns that flank the entrance doors on Harwood and Wood Streets are monolithic - the first in Dallas. Each column was shipped to Dallas on a separate flatcar from Indiana.
