United Church of Silverton

-A A +A
1880, Harlan P. Roberts, builder. 1060 Reese St. (corner of 11th St.)

The oldest Congregational church on the Western Slope did not complete its steep, shingle-clad steeple with a weathervane finial until 1892. Pastor Roberts and his flock built this vernacular Carpenter's Gothic church. The matching clapboard parsonage (1884) wears Neoclassical trim instead of the Gothic reserved for the church.
