Marker Text Presbyterians in Kerrville shared a Union Church with other denominations before a congregation was formally organized in 1888. A small wooden church built that year was replaced by this structure in 1923. Prominent features of the Beaux Arts style sanctuary include a monumental two-story wooden entry with flanking Doric columns, classical pediment and decorative details, and large arched stained glass windows. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1987
