"The Carrollton Downtown Historic District includes several community landmark buildings. The Carrollton Presbyterian Church and parsonage are located in the southwestern portion of the district. The church, constructed in 1902, is an excellent example of a Romanesque Revival-style church featuring a square corner crenellated tower with rounded-arch openings; rounded-arch window openings, door openings, and an arched arcade supported by grouped Corinthian columns; and large rose windows.
