The Akron Presbyterian Church was organized on July 6, 1919. The meeting was at the Akron Methodist Church which is where the Presbyterians met until their first church as built. In 1920, the Presbyterians started a building fund for their church. Their first service was held in their newly completed church on November 24, 1922. This Victorian-style church, with its asymmetrical façade, Gothic pointed windows, and boldly defined corner tower, is a unique and picturesque landmark in northwest Hale County. It is located at the intersection of Fourth Avenue South and Seventh Street in Akron (GPS coordinates 32.875593,-87.737744).
