The rectory stands just east of the dormitory. It is a one-story log building, constructed of logs sawn flat on three sides. The building has a hip roof and a hip-roofed projection in the center. The rectory carries the log-construction tradition into the present, as many of the buildings in town are log cabins. One curious convention, perhaps adapted from the dormitory, is that several houses around town have a log first floor and a wood-framed second story, or upper portion of the first.
