The Little Log Church

This little church and museum is in the oceanside town of Yachats, Oregon.  It was built in 1930 in the shape of a cross.

As the size of the congregation grew it outgrew the building (the sanctuary only holds about 60 people) and a new church was constructed nearby.  This building was converted to a museum, which underwent a complete restoration in 1993, still has an operating 100 year-old pump organ, and there is a very nice garden area behind the building.  The property may be rented for weddings or other events.

I walked through the building looking at old photographs and memorabilia but was most interested in a large cabinet displaying a variety of colorful shells and other items:
