Ralston Presbyterian Church

Address: 7400 Indiana St., Golden, 80401

Ralston Presbyterian Church was probably named because of its close proximity to the community of Ralston Crossing. Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Newcomb gave one-half acre of land and a cash donation for the construction of the church. Before the church was completed in 1910, Rev. Victor Trelick held services in Ralston Crossing schoolhouse. When it became Ralston Valley Chapel Community Church in 1963, the belfry was transformed into a steeple, and the red brick church was painted white. The appearance of the church changed again in 1982 when it was sold to the Vietnamese Buddhist Congregation of Colorado. The appearance and name changed again to West Ridge Christian Church for a few years.
