Christian Church Forest Grove

Title

Christian Church Forest Grove

Description

This wood three story church with a bell tower at the front right corner of the building was located at the corner of 19th Avenue and Cedar Street. A stairway leads to the front doors on the second floor. The front and right side yards are unkept with tall grass and weeds. There may be some form of sidewalk as that portion of the photograph is of a lighter shade. The street is dirt and looks to be very rough. On the left side of the picture there are two houses with some out buildings in back of the first house. On the right side of the picture is the back side of another house facing Pacific Avenue. This Church was built in 1891 to replace the previous Church on this site but was consumed by fire in 1947. A brick Christian Church was then built in the site.
