Among the Churches

Current Notes

Galveston, Texas.—A magnificent church site has been given to First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Galveston. The gift consists of three lots on the southeast corner of Twenty-seventh street and Avenue P, fronting 128 feet on Avenue O and running back 120 feet. There is nothing on the three lots at present, but it is stipulated in the deed of gift that a church edifice be constructed thereon. Plans to this end will be made shortly, and it is understood that the congregation contemplates building a handsome structure.
