Inscription.  

Organized Nov. 21, 1867, in the Presbytery of Brazos by the Rev. J.H. Hutchinson, this apparently was the second denominational group in Bryan. In 1871, members themselves built their first sanctuary at Washington and 29th Streets. This effort was praised by Synod as "the way to build a church".

A new brick structure was erected at the old site in 1906. At present site, first services were held in educational wing, June 1958. Present sanctuary was completed in 1966. In its first century, congregation was served by seventeen ministers.
 
Erected 1970 by State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 8681.)
