Significance: The First Baptist Church, constructed in 1853-60, is the home of the oldest Baptist congregation in Indiana. Styled in the Greek Revival manner, the brick structure's four elevations are dominated by Tuscan pilasters and recessed segmental-arched panels, emphasizing balance and regularity in the design. The principal denticulated gable pediment is repeated over the central doorway, and supported by scrolled brackets. Elegant stained glass windows soften the austere, rectilinear outlines of both interior and exterior surfaces.
