Significance: The Presbyterian Church, built in 1882, was the first church to be constructed in what was then the "new" townsite of Niobrara (established 1881). The congregation itself is believed to be the oldest ecclesiastical organization in the town. It is, in addition, the only parish established in the nineteenth century that has continued to remain strong in the Niobrara community. Architecturally, the church is an adaptation of a standard building plan and form of similar churches in Nebraska.
