"Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church, Louisville KY"
ca 1930
From a 4-view postcard of Louisville churches

The Central (Fourth Avenue) Presbyterian Church at 4th and Kentucky dates from about 1930.  It houses the only E. M. Skinner pipe organ in Kentucky, which was restored in 1997.  It houses a thriving congregation in the last of what were once five Presbyterian Churches in the neighborhood.  Of the others, the Stuart Robinson Memorial Presbyterian Church at Sixth and Magnolia, built in 1891, is now a private home, the church at First and Ormsby now belongs to another denomination, the Warren Memorial at 4th and Broadway and the Second Presbyterian Church at 2nd and Broadway were demolished in the late 1950s. 

The city has long been a stronghold of the Presbyterian Church.  Today, Louisville is the headquarters of the Presbyterian Church, USA.
