The church is distinguished by Tudor arches, Celtic crosses, corner bell tower, half-timbered stucco facade and stained-glass windows. The Rev. Thomas Condon, pastor of an earlier congregation, achieved wide recognition in scientific circles for his fossil and other geologic discoveries in the John Day River country.
