Rural Oregon 2: Locust Grove Church.

I haven't even scratched the surface of visiting the sites of Oregon's settlers, but from what I've seen, there are a pretty good number of old, reasonably well-preserved relics of the first communities that truly sit in the middle of fields and have seldom visitors. I don't know why I find the buildings so intriguing, but I think it is somewhere in between appreciating their untouched stark beauty and imagining the significance of them in their active time period.  Somehow, a sense of discovery always ensues upon finding these places too.  Anyhow, the only info I could dig up on one of today's sites, Locust Grove Church, was that it was active between 1895 and 1914...and you can actually navigate there via Google Maps!
