Inscription. The Congregationalists were the first to organize a church in Wauwatosa. In 1853 they purchased this lot for $50 and erected a small wooden church. The present structure, designed by architect Edwin O. Kuenzli, was begun in 1919 and enlarged in 1959. The 1853 church was incorporated into the west end of the building. The steeple is a replica of one in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
