Marker Text The Rev. Kimberly served as the first pastor of the Central Christian Church of Winnsboro, organized in 1893 with twenty charter members. The following year the congregation had this sanctuary constructed. The original steeples were destroyed by a tornado in 1895 and not replaced. Remodeled in 1914, the building reflects influences of the prairie and classical revival styles. The church membership has included many prominent area leaders. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1980
