#175 First Church of Christ, Scientist

1345 Locust St. -- 1924

A local group of Christian Scientists first began meeting in Walnut Creek in 1913, paying $1 each week to rent space at the Masonic Temple.  Church members purchased this lot on Locust Street in 1920 and held their first service in their own church in 1924. A larger church was built in 1949. The church then moved to Eckley Lane in 1968.
