The Hyde Park Congregational Church first met at 9th and Salisbury Streets before moving into a former Presbyterian church located at 1501 Bremen Avenue. At the intersection of Bremen and Blair Avenues, the congregation built a new church in 1894. It cost $20,000 and was described as “three stories in front and two in the rear, the ground floor being two feet six inches below sidewalk level, and is devoted to Sunday school purposes . . .” The auditorium seated 700 and had an adjoining lecture room to accommodate 200 more. This beautiful, massive structure served the congregation until World War II. It was no longer listed in church directories as of 1945.
