Stones of Remembrance

In 1994, a history of Central Presbyterian Church was published to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the church. The book, written by Marilyn McCarthy is now out of print. This section of Preserved Wisdom's Central History provides a digitized copy of the book.


Central Presbyterian Church Historical Artifacts

Over the years since the church's founding in 1844, many historical relics and artifacts have been saved. This section of Central History is an archive of the history of Central Presbyterian Church saved over the years and digitized.


Central Presbyterian Church Journals

Journals recording the activities, leaders, group reports and events were diligently recorded by early church historians. These journals will soon be added to the historical record. Previous generations of Central members blessed us and future generations by recording the annual doings of the church.


The Central History Project

In time, this section of Preserved Wisdom's Central History will present the results of an in-depth research study of Central Presbyterian Church as it dovetails with the history of the City of Saint Louis. The first 90 years of the church's history, from 1844-1934 will be explored.
