The First Presbyterian Church of Nashville is a textbook example of Victorian “Carpenter Gothic” architecture. The building features interior exposed Gothic beams, bead board ceilings, wainscoting, a four-square Victorian bell tower, High Gothic bronze door hardware and intricately cut Florentine glass windows. It served the community as a church from 1912-1975 and then as a museum, but has been vacant for years. The local historical association has plans for its rehabilitation and use.
