Spring Valley Church, Brush College Road, (D)

This area north of West Salem was an important part of the early Salem settlements, close family ties and agricultural history unites these two communities. The old Spring Valley Presbyterian Church was erected by volunteer labor in 1859, the lumber transported by boat to the town of Lincoln on the Willamette River. The bell came from England around Cape Horn to Oregon. It has long been a beacon for worship and its cemetery is still a place for commemorating those who lived in the community in the past.
