Westminster Presybyterian Church – 8th

College Avenue Presbyterian Church purchased this property in 1928 and changed its name to Westminster Presbyterian Church. The congregation, which had its origins in 1888 and was formally organized in 1897, constructed this building in phases. The basement was completed in 1929. In 1940, the congregation announced that the plans for the upper story, designed by Wiley G. Clarkson and Co., had been finalized. However, the church was not completed until 1948. Its simplified Late Gothic Revival style reflects the subdued construction of the World War II era. The congregation moved to a building in southwest Fort Worth in 1960 and a new congregation known as Eighth Avenue Baptist Temple moved in. The original stained glass windows have been removed and the building now houses an architectural firm.
