Marker Text This sanctuary was constructed in 1894, six years after Central Christian Church was founded by The Rev. M.F. Smith. Built by craftsmen Roger Brothers and R. Chenowith, the Gothic Revival structure was one of the first of its style to appear in this area of the Texas frontier. Outstanding features of the church building include the steeply-pitched gables, lancet windows, and fine interior woodwork. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1962.
