Inscription.  

First United Presbyterian Church, 1879
8th & Broadway
Gothic Revival Style
Robert Bunce, Architect

Churches usually have an elaborate entrance or portico
to mark the transition into a religious dwelling.
The three portals symbolize the doctrine of the trinity
with God as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
The leaf form seen in this crocket was
repeated throughout the façade.
