The Oldest A/G house of worship in the USA. Oldest church in northern california

The church is entirely constructed of California oak and redwood siding. I stands as sturdy and strong today as when it was first built.The pews in this church circular in build and amazingly beautiful. Made of eastern oak they are as hard and heavy as iron. In her book, Tehama: Little City of Big Trees, Clara Hough Hisken claims that “six pews would form a complete circle.” She also claims that they were especially ordered and designed by a firm in Michigan. But other stories of the pews coming to the USA over the horn is usually told by older church goers.
