Monmouth Founder's Church

Monmouth, Oregon 97361, United States

Created By: City of Monmouth - Historic Commission


Originally constructed in 1877 as the Monmouth Christian Church, the church was built by the first group of pioneers to donate land for establishment of a townsite. It was constructed on the southwest corner of Monmouth and Church Streets. In 1893, the church was moved to its present location, after the State of Oregon took control of the college. Membership increased steadily over the years and by 1913 a larger building was needed. At this time, numerous additions were made, and the original building was greatly enlarged. In 1925, a parsonage was built on the adjacent lot to the north.
