A color postcard of Second Presbyterian Church in Roanoke, Virginia, postmarked May 1912. The church is located at 214 Mountain Avenue in Roanoke's "Old Southwest" neighborhood.
The following information was taken directly from the church's website, http://www.spres.org -- "In February 1891, the idea of establishing a "second" Presbyterian church was born. Roanoke was growing rapidly, and a new church was needed to accommodate all the worshippers. The first services were held in a private home and in a vacant building while the chapel was being built. The chapel was opened for use in 1892 and served the congregation until the present stone building was erected in 1906."
