Inscription.  This church was established in 1854 by an act of the East Texas Presbytery. The Rev. W.C. Dunlap was organizer of the congregation and served as its pastor for two years. Members met in a Baptist church until the completion of their first building on N. Fourth Street. In 1886 a new building was constructed at this location. It burned on Christmas Day, 1926, and was replaced by the present structure. The church is also known as Tenney Memorial in honor of the Rev. S.F. Tenney who served as pastor for 54 years, 1871-1925.
