A photograph of the First Baptist Church located in downtown Nashville at the northeast corner of 7th Avenue and Broadway. The First Baptist Church was originally organized in the year 1820. Members met for services in the Davidson County Courthouse. The congregation had two different church buildings before occupying the current location at 615 Broadway in 1886. During a building project from October 1967 to 1970 the original church building at this address was razed, though the old steeple tower was maintained and incorporated to the new and larger church building. The architectural style is American Gothic, with a variety of arches adorning the building. The foundation is brick. The exterior walls are brick. Special features include a tower. Forms part of the Historic Nashville, Inc. Sacred Sites Survey Project. 1 photograph : col. ; 4 x 6 in.
