Presbyterian Church, Charlottesville, 1916

Someone asked me today if I have any old postcards showing the First Christian Church building referenced in this post, but unfortunately I don't. The church pictured here, however, used to sit just one block to the east, on what is now the parking lot behind Wachovia Bank downtown.

Charlottesville Presbyterian Church was located on the southwest corner of 2nd & Market from 1898-1956, when the congregation moved to their new home at 500 Park St. and re-named themselves First Presbyterian Church -- which will be the site, coincidentally, of the Dec. 23 PACEM benefit concert referenced in this post. (You knew it would all come full circle at some point, right?)
