First Baptist Church

Designation Date: November 29, 2012

First Baptist Church is a fine example of the kind of large Gothic Revival church built by prosperous congregations in early-twentieth century cities, and a major early work of William Alexander Elliot (1866-1957), who was the architect of several prominent buildings in Brandon and elsewhere. The church’s size, its broad, battlemented corner tower, and its vigorous massing, carried out in brick and stone, make it a landmark in the city. The church has excellent exterior integrity and retains many interior features.
