Building History

The congregation grew very quickly between 1877-1892, from 150 to 480 parishioners, necessitating that a new church with a larger capacity be built. In 1894, a new 1500-seat church was built at 4th Avenue and Spring Street.

In 1896, the Mount Zion Baptist Church utilized this old Presbyterian facility for its congregation. J.C. Pegram was the Baptist minister at this time. (See "In the Churches,"Seattle Times, 08/08/1896, p.3.)
