First Christian Church, Eugene, Oregon

p3010048

The cornerstone of the present church building was laid in 1911 at a original cost $75,000, although it was reduced by $1,000 when the contractor was unable to fix a leak in the dome. It leaked for 81 years and was finally fixed! One of the most impressive features of the church is its stained glass windows which may be found in every part of the original structure including the Sunday School and meeting rooms. The Sanctuary windows depict the story of the Christ in Gothic style, reproducing several famous paintings. I didn’t get near the time I wanted but will be checking it out a lot closer on my next visit! This building is a true treasure!
