1. First Presbyterian Church of Terrell Marker
Inscription. This congregation traces its history to two Presbyterian churches formed in the 1870s. A Cumberland Presbyterian Church, formerly located in the town of Lawrence, and the First Presbyterian Church in Terrell, also called the Old School Presbyterian Church, joined in 1904 to form a united congregation. A sanctuary was built at Rockwall and High streets in 1907-08 and was replaced in 1958 by a new structure at this site. Throughout its history, the First Presbyterian Church of Terrell has been an integral part of the life of the city.

Correction:
The Cumberland
Presbyterian Church
mentioned above was
located in Terrell,
not in Lawrence.
