Established in 1847, Austin's First Baptist Church has been an institution of the Texas capital for almost as long the city has existed. From its original location at 12th and Lavaca to its current location at 9th and Trinity, the First Baptist Church has witnessed the growth of the city from a frontier town to a vibrant city. The films in the First Baptist Church of Austin Collection feature a glimpse into the church's history, with footage of trips, youth programs, sermons, and celebrations. This footage includes an airplane arrival, possibly at Robert Mueller Municipal Airport, and a church picnic.
