In 1900 , C. N. Potter and wife deeded this land, a part of the A. F. Waller Donation Land Claim, to the Evangelical Lutheran Christian Church of Salem, Oregon, a corporation, and to D. G. and A. W. Granger. It is assumed the church was built soon after that date. The style is similar to other churches built in the late 1800s in the Salem area. In 1966, the land was acquired by State Street Baptist Church. The transfer to the present congregation was in 1976.
