Congregational parsonage


Congregational parsonage


Sepia-toned image of a two story Dutch Colonial Revival house with a gambrel roof and a widow's walk between the dormer windows in the roof. A covered porch runs along the front of the home, in front of two series of three windows on either side of the front door. Another staircase going into the side of the home can be seen to the left side of the image; a boardwalk leads to that staircase and another to the front staircase. Built in 1905 and designed by the then pastor's wife, this house was the parsonage for the Congregational Church in Forest Grove for approximately sixty years. Now a private home, the house still stands today and is located in Forest Grove's Clark Historic District. A one cent stamp is affixed to the back of the postcard.
