First Presbyterian

    Michigan Historical Marker

Church Marker The First Presbyterian Church built on this site in 1858. Burned in February 1873.

Detroit architect Elijah E. Myers was immediately commissioned to plan a new church which was completed in 1879. (Myers also designed Michigan's present state capital.)

In 1883 fire again ravaged the church. The Romanesque Revival building's shell and two stained glass windows were saved and incorporated into the present church which was dedicated on August 10, 1884.
