Oaks Pioneer Church (Portland, Oregon)

Oaks Pioneer Church was built in 1851. In 1960 the old church had fallen into disuse and was scheduled for demolition. Funds were raised to keep the church from destruction, and in 1961 the church was shipped to its current location at the edge of Sellwood Park next to the Willamette River. Oaks Pioneer Church is now listed as a Portland Historical Landmark and is included on the National Register of Historic Places. Weddings are performed here.

I stumbled upon this place on my way to the Gorge for the Dave Matthews Band Labor Day Weekend festivities. I had never been to Sellwood before, even though I’ve been to Portland many times. Great neighborhood.
