Is It Accidental?

I was talking with veteran preacher Dick Halstead recently. He mentioned having lived at Mill City, Oregon. A couple of questions put to him opened the door to another piece of history.

He revealed that the local Presbyterian Church building had one time belonged to the Church of Christ. That was long before the Church of Christ built in 1927.

Armed with that clue, I located a photo of the old building at the local historical society. Another mystery has been solved and now we know where the pre-1900 Church of Christ settled in Mill City, Oregon.
