First St.Anthony's Church, Tigard


Photograph of a wooden church with a large, square bell tower at the front. Arched, double panes windows bracket a small, roofed front porch. Stairs with railings lead up on either side of the porch. An arched window and circular window are located above the front porch. Four arched, stained-glass windows run the length of the church. The rectory, a square, two-story building, is located to the back and left of the church. The first St. Anthony's Church was constructed on what is now SW Pacific Highway between 1910-1911. The first mass celebrated was on Easter Sunday, 1911. In 1959, as the number of parishioners increased, a new, larger church was constructed next door.
