Inscription.  The First United Methodist Church was designed by architect James Baldwin and constructed by Charles Whitaker in 1926. It is the third Methodist church located on this site, with the first dating to 1902. The church is Late Gothic Revival in style with a strong English Gothic influence. The church interior includes a large u-shaped balcony facing the altar. The leaded, Tiffany-styled stained glass windows were manufactured in 1926 by the George Hardy Payne Studios of Patterson, New Jersey. There are ten windows in the east and west walls of the sanctuary depicting major events in the life and passion of Christ while the large southern window is a reproduction of Leonardo Da Vinci's "The Last Supper." The church's lofty bell tower contains fifteen bronze bells, ten of which were cast in 1926 by the Meneely Bell Company of Troy, New York.
 
Erected by City of St. Petersburg.
