Building Notes

The 1st Christian Church congregation purchased two parcels of land in 1889, one at 915 Harrison Street, and the other at East 42nd and 2nd Avenue NE. On the Harrison Street lot, the group established a parsonage for the use of its pastor. On the Latona Addition site, it built a frame building to house a Sunday School. (See Robert A.
