Bergen Park Church

Jefferson County

The Bergen Park Church is a good example of a Modern Movement building with Rustic-style influences. In 1949, the church acquired the ca. 1885 Soda Creek School schoolhouse, expanding it to meet the needs of its growing congregation.

In 1962 a new sanctuary was built and connected to the former schoolhouse. Modern Movement aesthetics are evident in the large striking sanctuary with its vertical-pane stained glass windows and sharply angled front-gable roof. Rustic-style elements include the D-log siding installed in 1962 and the rock-faced concrete buttresses that support the sanctuary walls.
