Title

Evangelical Church, Hillsboro

Description

Black and white image of a wooden church. A cross-gabled building faces a muddy street behind a boardwalk. The front entrance is located in a square bell tower that sits next to the front section in the corner between the two sections. Double-hung windows in pairs are set beneath arched transom windows. The bell tower is open, with a hipped roof and a railing around it. Power lines run from the building out of the picture, and power poles are visible in the background. Set immediately against the church to the right of the image is a white gabled house with a single dormer window, set above a small covered porch. A wooden fence runs to the left of the image from the edge of the church. More houses of various sizes and kinds are visible in the background, including one square roofed building to the left of the church. Bare branches are visible on some trees and bushes.
