In 1928, the College Avenue Presbyterian Church had outgrown its site nearer downtown and decided to relocate to the corner of Myrtle and 8th Avenue. Due to lack of funds, only the basement of the current structure was built at that time. The Depression and World War II delayed construction of the main sanctuary, but the church did make some modest expansions over the years. In 1948, the congregation finally built the sanctuary above the basement. In 1959, the church purchased new property and moved out of this building. In 1961, it was sold and became the 8th Avenue Baptist Temple. From the late 1980's until 1997, it was the home of Girls, Inc. In 1998, the church was purchased by Hahnfeld, Hoffer, Stanford Architects, and was renovated for their offices. They later relocated to another building. It has now been converted into doctor's offices.
