Historic Church

Salem First Methodist Episcopal Church ca. 1878
Salem First United Methodist Church is a Methodist congregation and historic church in Salem, Oregon, United States. The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places under its original name, First Methodist Episcopal Church of Salem, in 1983. First United is the oldest Methodist church west of the Rocky Mountains, and is a designated United Methodist Heritage Landmark. It is one of the few high-style Gothic Revival churches outside of Portland, and has one of the rare tall spires left standing in the state.

I got this beautiful Church from A. Lawson of Salem,Oregon daily blog diary.
