Overview

In 1839, this Methodist congregation met in the Senate Chamber of the Capital of the Republic of Texas. By 1844, when the "Little Red Brick Church" was built, there were 68 members out of a Houston population of 2,000. By 1910, after moving to two other buildings, Sanguine and Staats designed the gothic Akron-Style church, which is in use today. The church contains ten stained glass windows, nine of which survived the fire of 1983. There is also a splendid Swedish chandelier with 1,001 prisms plus the Acolian Skinner pipe organ has 118 ranks.
