Chelan's "Log Church" was built in 1898 and is officially known as the Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church. This log building was built by architect, Kirtland Kelsey Cutter of Spokane, in 1898 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. Episcopalians established a logging camp in 1896 at Granite Falls which provided the logs and money for construction. Teams of horses hauled the logs to Lake Chelan where the steamer, "Stehekin", towed them down lake to the town of Chelan. The bell and bell tower were added later in 1899. ~paraphrased form the sign on location featured in this pano-sphere.

The mural on the back exterior wall was created by another local artist, Ron McGaughey (Web: RonMcGaughey.com). These panospheres were among the earliest 360-degree virtual tour photos I created." ~T.W.OldField
