First Presbyterian Church of Downey


I like the older churches in our city. This one always appeals to me, with the stately entrance and large lawn in the front (though I have never been inside).

The building was erected in 1927, although the church began long before that. I have been unable to find the exact details about the beginnings of the church, but I have read it is over a century old.

I do wonder when the palm trees were planted. In a picture found in "Images of Downey" by Larry Latimer, the church is pictured in 1955 looking pretty much the same except the trees surrounding it are large pines. Click here to see another view of this church and its historic bell.
