Summary: Donated a copy of a book about the history of Grace
Lutheran Church of Fort Worth. Grace Lutheran Church was organized as
the Gustavus Adolphus Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Church in 1905 with
Dr. Theodore Seashore as the first pastor. The parlors and parsonage
were built at 404 Hemphill Street in 1909, and the sanctuary was added
in 1912. In 1918, services were changed from Swedish to English. In
April of 1925, the name was changed to Grace Evangelical Lutheran
Church. In 1950, a new parsonage was built at 2306 South Adams. This
was sold in 1969, and the parsonage at 3729 Kelvin was purchased. The
50th Anniversary of Grace was celebrated in 1955 and property was
purchased for relocation on the South Freeway. The first phase of the
new church was built and dedicated in 1957. On May 30, 1976, the
cornerstone from the old church was moved and unveiled on the present
property at 7900 McCart Avenue, Fort Worth.
