Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1940s. Front St.

The Episcopalians rebuilt their church here in the 1940s, purchasing logs for $100 from Fort Egbert's hospital building. The original church, similar in design, had been built by the Presbyterians in 1900 and acquired by the Episcopalians in 1905; it now operates as a nondenominational church. Crowned by an open belfry, the current church is constructed of logs sawn flat on three sides, square notched at the corners. There is a gable-roofed vestibule with a splayed lintel on the doorway and molded panels on the door. A smaller, one-story hyphen connects the church to the two-story rectory, also constructed of logs. The rectory, larger than the church, shows some architectural sophistication, with a low shed dormer in its gable roof, slightly pedimented molded lintels, and exposed rafter ends reminiscent of the bungalow style.
