HISTORY – FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH BUILDING
One of the premier protestant churches in Durango, First Presbyterian, was organized May 28, 1882. Shortly after the narrow gauge railroad line began serving here, a major fire consumed the city's heart including this and several other churches.
However, assisted by several other Presbyterian churches across America, the present cornerstone was laid – June 13th, 1889 at Third Avenue and 12th Street – and soon this distinctive structure arose with its numerous and magnificent stained glass windows. The sanctuary was completed with stone, frame, and many good hearts to serve both Sunday School and worship services. It has continued to serve for well over a century.
Additions were made in 1940, 1958, and 2000 – classrooms, elevator, parlors, kitchen, etc. The session and congregants work diligently to make improvements to accommodate a growing membership.
No matter the age – toddler, college, or adult – a smile of welcome and warmth greet all who find a home at Durango's
First Presbyterian Church.
