Hyatt Memorial church was founded in 1955 to serve the Gate City congregation
that was displaced when the owners of the meeting building evicted the church.
After this experience, the congregation was eager for its own building.
In November 1956, a building and property were acquired. A campaign
was begun to raise funds to refurbish the property. A new building
was constructed, opened and consecrated in March 1958. The church was
closed in December 1987, and the property was sold with proceeds to be used
for new church development.
