First Presbyterian Church of Sarasota, Sarasota – Origin:
The current sanctuary was built.
The congregation voted to relocate the church school section to the East Courtyard at the rear of the original sanctuary, add a second story to the relocated section, air-condition the worship building, and construct a manse south of the Sanctuary.
In addition to the approximately five hundred members, the church provided services for hundreds of tourists during the winter season.
