Highland Friends Church, 580 Highland Avenue NE, (LL)

The first Friends meeting in Salem took place in 1891 and a church was built on this site during that year. The church was located on property developed by the Oregon Land Company at that time in the ownership of J. H. Minthorn who donated the land for the church. The present building was completed in 1921.The bell, the side-facing stained glass windows, and the decorative gable in the Gothic style with the inscription "1891" were taken from the old church to be used in the present structure. See 1917 photograph.
