First Methodist Church

Designed by Weatherford architect George Godfrey this English Victorian Gothic building has never been changed since its completion in 1891 and its dedication in 1893. Built of Parker County limestone windows and doorways feature lancet arches and the bell tower is Norman-English in style. The stained glass windows on the west side of the building are of special interest. An outstanding feature of the interior is the 55 foot high beaded ceiling in a tongue-in-groove herringbone pattern. On the south side is a garden featuring plants mentioned in the Bible. The family life center completed in 2000 mirrors the use of local quarried limestone and lancet arched windows in the main sanctuary. Along the east wall of the family life center stained glass windows showcase a garden of colorful butterflies birds and flowers. Texas Historic Landmark
