Christian Church -

Members of the Christian Church pose for a photo sometime in the 1920s. In 1857, the Christian Church was built in the little town of Liberty. It is said to be the first church in the area. When Galt’s town was created, the little town of Liberty just south of Galt began moving its buildings into the new town. Hotels, saloons, the school and, in 1878, the Christian Church was placed at one of the original grid’s corners, now 7th and B streets. It had a square Gothic bell tower. Its battlements were an unusual example of the 1860 architecture, usually Greek Revival. The original church was constructed of lumber that came round the Horn. That lumber is still in use as the church’s main body as it was when it was moved from Liberty. Today it is one of the oldest structures in the city of Galt. The ground floor is currently Rosa De Saron.
