Built in 1849 for a Methodist convention, Seguin's first church building was used by worshipers of all Protestant denominations. Now at 210 E. Live Oak Street, the building was first located facing the courthouse. In 1991, the SCS purchased and moved the First Church, restored it, and now it is available for rent to the public. Made famous in Janice Woods Windle's book, True Women, the church has been updated to include electric lights, climate control and restrooms.
This charming old structure has a special ambiance and is perfect for small weddings, meetings and seminars, especially since the Chamber Leadership Class added a beautiful bell tower last year.
The property, which includes the use of the surrounding grounds, rents for $250.00 for a full 12 hour day, 8am to 8pm. A half day rental is $125.00 from 8am to 2pm or 2pm to 8pm. A $50.00 refundable deposit is required and returned when the church is left in the same condition as when rented. Contact Mary McDonald at 401-4543 for further information.
