Inscription.  

In the early 1880s a small group of pioneer Kerrville Women collected funds to build a Union church, and a small sanctuary was completed in 1885. Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, and other congregations shared the building with the Christian (Disciples of Christ) Fellowship for many years. Through the efforts of the Rev. P. E. Hawkins and Dr. H. R. Wall, the First Christian Church of Kerrville was granted sole ownership of the Union building in 1925. Through the years, its members have become active in outreach and missionary programs.
 
Erected 1985 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 1704.)
