Did You Know #9

DID YOU KNOW, in 1968, First United Presbyterian Church, the First Christian Church, and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church jointly ran a facility for university age young people. Called the 714 Coffee House, located in the original adobe Episcopal Church building at 714 National Avenue. Presbyterian support for the venture was provided by the Westminster Foundation. Programming at the coffee house was prominently featured in the 1968 Southwest Wind yearbook of Highlands University. Issues of the Vietnam War and the military draft were frequent topics of discussion. (Source: Jay Schufle)
