First Presbyterian Church of Dallas

Dallas, Texas

The First Presbyterian Church of Dallas is a significant historical, cultural and community landmark, having served its spiritual community and the city as a whole for more than 100 years. Designed by Dallas Architect C.D.Hill and constructed in 1912-1913, the sanctuary is one of Dallas’ finest buildings, standing in a prominent location in an area of downtown that is experiencing a positive rejuvenation. As with most significant historic sites, changes made to the building since its construction reflects historical shifts in social, ecumenical and stylistic trends. While the exterior is well preserved, these historical shifts are illustrated most significantly in renovations to the sanctuary’s interior conducted in 1959 and in the 1980’s. Despite these changes, the sanctuary retains many of its most significant character-defining features including the decorative plaster and dramatic art-glass dome.

Architexas provided architectural and historic preservation services for the interior rehabilitation of the sanctuary to include restoration or reconstruction of character-defining features, finishes and furnishings while accommodating the new worship needs and worship styles of the church.
