2. First Presbyterian Church (1927)


435 Palm Boulevard
The 1927 church building is a good example of Gothic Revival style architecture. Organized by Hiram Chamberlain on February 23, 2850, this is the first Protestant congregation in the lower Rio Grande Valley. Chamberlain served as the pastor until his death on November 2, 1866. His daughter, Henrietta, married Capt. Richard King in a ceremony officiated by Chamberlain. The Kings remained active members of the church.
