January 9 in San Antonio history…

Demolition begins on the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at 324 Soledad. The church was the first Protestant church in the city, dedicated in 1853 as the Paine Methodist Episcopal Church.

The cornerstone is laid for the new Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

San Antonio has at last been placed on the list of Andrew Carnegie and will get $50,000 for a new library.
