Pleasant Grove Presbyterian Church, 1313 Mill Street SE, (NR)

In 1984, this 1857 church was moved from its original location near West Stayton, a small community several miles west of Stayton in Marion County, Oregon. Photographs of the church can be found here. Just before it was moved, historian/photographer George Strozut took aerial photographs of the church in its original location. He also crawled beneath the building to photograph the original hand-milled beams which, protected from the elements, retained a fresh-hewn appearance.
