Corretions/New Research:

Marker Text: Founded in 1915, this was the second Church of Christ congregation established in Houston. G. A. Dunn served as minister when the congregation built its first place of worship in 1916. In 1924 noted Houston architect Alfred C. Finn was hired to design a new church structure in the renaissance revival style with Georgian revival influences. A significant element in the Houston Heights neighborhood, the church has established new congregations throughout the Houston area and has been involved in foreign missionary endeavors, as well.
