Congregational Church of Forest Grove


Congregational Church of Forest Grove


The first Congregational Church was destroyed by fire in 1901. The second church was destroyed by fire in 1919. This brick building was built in 1920 and is the third in a series of Congregational Churches on this property along 21st Avenue between Main Street and College Way. The front is an unusual quarter-round with entrances close to each end, one on College Way and one on 21st Avenue. Each entrance is in a tower that appears to be one story above the roofline of the building. The building is two stories high with a partial basement. There is a sign our front and all that can be read is CONGREGATIONAL There is a concrete walkway to the entry steps and one close to the church that connects the two entrances. On the right, in the background, a late 1930’s car can be seen along with storefronts on Main Street.
