First Congregational United Church of Christ Portland
Tucked smack in the middle of Portland's downtown area, this 19th-century church is a wonderful example of Venetian Gothic architecture. Speakers, concerts and church services are all offered here, but the grounds and interior can be viewed weekdays. The stonework is something to see, especially the magnificent tower and checkerboard-patterned walls. The church is located near MAX light rail, Pioneer Courthouse Square and the Portland Art Museum.

Prior to 1994 the Church building was a National Historic Buildig sitting on columns that were on sandstone piers rapidly rotting away. Many ideas were considered to reinforce tham but none would satisfy the Historic people.
So the unthinkable was done--the entire wall the columns were supporting was jacked up, the old bases slid out, new ones slid in, and the wall set back down. Without a stone being disturbed or the large window cracked.
Come see it. Hard to believe.
