Statement of significance: 
An excellent example of the Spanish Eclectic style and the only existing non-residential example in Pendleton. This building is not only unaltered but also pure in style. A corner stone bears the date the building was dedicated in 1926. However, it is church policy to dedicate buildings only after they are completely paid for. Therefore, construction probably occurred before 1926.
