Home of the first Methodist church in San Diego, c. 1890. Located on the northeast corner of Fourth Avenue and Broadway, the church was first a wooden structure built in 1870 on land donated by Alonzo Horton.

According to notes at the Historical Society, the “three-story building served both as church and as a business investment. The upper floors were used as a public meeting hall, as well as for church services and Sunday school; the street floor housed various offices and businesses.”

Demolition of the brick edifice occurred in 1907, and the Owl Drug Company building took its place.
