The name of the church is Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church and it is a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark. This congregation organized as a Swedish Lutheran Church in 1905. The congregation hired Conrad Hoeffler to design their new building in 1906, but the construction was delayed until 1912 due to lack of funds. The contractor for the building was R.C. Sweeney. The building features a brown brick veneer with fine corbelling and projecting courses. The arched windows have stained glass in them. The church has a gabled roof with a square entry tower on the northeast corner.

But, while I was in the area, I drove over by Broadway Baptist Church, and there is an old church right next to it with No Trespassing signs on it. I assume it's empty. For some reason was thinking maybe it was call The Bridge at one point?? Does any know if BBC owns it. I would assume they do since it is right next door. Anyone have any info? It's a really pretty old church. I believe it's on the corner of Broadway and Galveston. Just curious. It's been a long time since I've really explored in that area.

Is that what is still planned for this building? I work nearby and have noticed people coming and going for the past few days. I would love to see it restored, it is an amazing building, from the outside.
