We had our wedding here, the cost of the space was well below our estimated budget. Silvia was amazing with helping with the arrangements. The church is beautiful and I couldn't have dreamed of a more wonderful place to say my I Dos.

Deconsecrated years ago, this former church operates now as a museum. The 7 stations of the cross that still remain are absolutely beautiful and the stained glass windows are gorgeous.

So fortunate that this wonderful landmark was saved from destruction in 1971 by the community. Well over a century old, the church steeple was long used as a reference point by boatsmen plying the Columbia River. The church has some wonderful stained glass windows.

It's worth stopping in for a look. Very small, so you probably won't be spending much time here. Nice bit of local history.

Old St. Peter's was built 150 yeas ago, they were getting ready to demolish it some years ago and a group of townspeople saved it. Still have some weddings there. The Italian marble is exquisite. This is a must see !

Close call in 1971 when the church managed to tear down the convent and school but the local folks saved this amazing building. It’s a must stop and see. Give them a donation, these old buildings require cash and it’s still a struggle to keep...More

It is a tribute to the community that they banded together to save this building; it is neat. The outside looks nicer than the inside, but that is where much of the looking goes on.
