In 1853, missionary Rev. E.B. Crisman formally organized the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Austin. Members met in a frame building at 7th and Lavaca streets until 1892, when they replaced it with a stone structure. In 1906, a dispute over a church merger that led all the way to the Texas Supreme Court forced the Cumberland members to move and turn their building over to the Presbyterian USA Church. Eight years later, through elder R.M. Castleman, the congregation was able to buy back its building. Around 1950, members built a new sanctuary at this location. The First Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Austin celebrated its 150th year in 2003.
