Second Presbyterian Church is a historic church at 4501 Westminster Place in St. Louis, Missouri.

History

The congregation was founded in 1838 by the Old School Presbytery of St. Louis.[2] It has had three buildings. Its first building, designed in the Greek Revival architectural style and completed in 1840, was located at Fifth (Broadway) and Walnut Streets.[3] Thirty years later, in 1870, a second church building was erected on Lucas Place at Seventeenth Street.[3]

The third and current building was completed in 1896.[2] It was designed by German-born architect Theodore C. Link.[2] The adjacent education building was completed in 1931.[2]
