First Christian Church, Houston
Architect: Hamilton Brown
1601 Sunset Blvd.

This beautiful church was built by Hamilton Brown, F.A.I.A. for the Disciples of Christ Christian Church. Floor to ceiling glass abounds around the sanctuary and classic mid-century colors and stained glass greet you at the entrance. The project was cited by a panel of Texas Architect Magazine judges as outstanding and worthy of an Architecture, 1959 Merit Award. It stands today as a testament to the Disciples of Christ Faith as well as Mid-Century Modern Architecture.
