Cornerstone laid at Westminster Presbyterian (1915)

Saturday, October 8, 2022

Anacortes Presbyterians held their first Anacortes service in a "gospel tent" on the last Sabbath of 1890, and built their first church (now the Croatian Cultural Center) at 5th and R in 1891. But it was on this date in 1915 that the members of the parish really set their foundation in stone, when they laid the cornerstone for the iconic Westminster Presbyterian Church. The congregation celebrated their last Sunday service in the old church on May 14, 1916 - the 25th anniversary of that building's dedication - and had their first service in the new brick church the following Sunday.
