Second Presbyterian Church on Prince Street in Alexandria #FlashbackFriday

This Flashback Friday, we’re back on Prince Street in Old Town Alexandria taking a look at the old Second Presbyterian Church in Alexandria. The sanctuary of the Second Presbyterian Church was located at 601 Prince Street (across the street).

This church was the dominant Presbyterian Church for many years in what is now the Old Town area of Alexandria and cared for the Old Presbyterian Meeting House after is closed down in 1899 until it re-opened with a new congregation in 1949. The Second Presbyterian Church closed in 1950.

As you can clearly see at this link, the land the building is on is now part of the John Douglas Brown House property (the privately-owned white house on the right in the photo).

Any of the local historians know how that occurred? Discuss below!
