What was then the Calvary Presbyterian Church was started to be built in 1882. It was that church until 1948 when it changed names several times — the Evangelical Baptist Church until 1951, the First Southern Baptist Church until 1965, the Metropolitan Baptist Church until 1967, until it was rescued from demolition and restored by the Portland Beautification Association and incorporated as "The Old Church" in 1968.

I’m looking for a place thats really old to lead a group of boys to a restoration service project. Old Church’s and cemeteries would be great if you know any.

The Lone Fir Cemetery is very old and has many pioneer families buried in it. It’s in SE Portland off of Belmont I think. The Lone Fir Cemetery would be your best choice. They always need help with restoration and repair of vandalism. My great, great grandfather is buried there. He died in the 1880’s and was born in 1835….came to Oregon in a covered wagon in 1852.

It’s own by the City of Portland, I think.
