Recorded Texas Historic Landmark 1986

Located at 566 North Reagan Street San Benito, Texas.

First Presbyterian Church of San Benito

This church was organized in 1910, three years after the founding of San Benito. The first building, a frame structure completed in 1911, served the congregation until a hurricane destroyed it in 1933. The following year, this building was constructed. Funded in part by a Federal Government loan, it was known as America's first Public Works Administration church. The structure's mission revival style features arched gable parapets.
