And a lovely old church. Historical placards around the properties. From 1844 so beautiful white clap board. One addition not visible from the road has remarkable stain glass windows. But you can not go in unless they are having a service. It is now Presbyterian (kind of Scottish in the US). Scotland has all their churches opener friendly.

Worth a stop on Zion Rd in Hillsboro. It is an important part of Washington County. Have never been inside but expect it to be a nice wooden structure.

If you consider yourself a photographer, you should visit this lovely old Church if you live or vacation in the area. I won first place in the Washington County fair for photography many years ago taking a picture of this church, and the scene is still the same today. The trees surrounding it frame the church beautifully. It's a beautiful... More

Old Scotch Church is wonderful to visit and reflect remembering those friends and family. Tualatin Plains Presbyterian does a great job in keeping the facility and grounds fresh.

Some of my ancestors are buried here and the church is a beautiful place for those who might want an old-fashioned wedding or for those who just want to attend Sunday service!
