     Built in 1903 as the First Baptist Church, this limestone structure replaced a red brick church on the same site. Architect of the romanesque revival style edifice was A. N. Dawson and contractor was G. D. Patterson. In 1923, when the Baptist congregation moved to larger facilities, Capt. William C. Tyrrell purchased the building and donated it to the city for use as a public library. It now (1976) houses an historical and genealogical collection. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1976
