Treasure this magnificent architectural masterpiece Johnston City! Having lived in two of the five largest cities in the United States with many architectural wonders, I still personally marvel at this structure each time I am home. It is a true symbol of the wonderful and prosperous place Johnston City was during its early years as well as a symbol of what our hometown could be once again if we utilized that same foresight of our ancestors.

The church that was built as masonic lodge is the one further down the road across the street from the First Christian church. This church says masonic lodge on the corner block of the building

I grew up in JC and went to this church. It was amazing to me as a child.Beautiful stained glass, pipe organ, stairs that seemed to go everywhere! I remember Mrs McCormick as my Sunday school teacher. I was so shy that she would sit me up on the piano bench with her while she played. And her flannel gragh stories were the best. I was baptised there on April 7,1974.
