Long Description:
Named after a Civil War veteran who made the Battle Hymn of the Republic famous, Charles Cardwell McCabe. Services started in this structure in 1886 and has been in use continually for the last 124 years. Situated with a picturesque view of the beautiful Willamette Valley this old church still has no running water. From the church History Page:

"The Nelson Cone family, which included six adult children and their families, came to Oregon from Ohio in 1883. A year later they settled on a hill in the vicinity of what is now the intersection of Masonville and McCabe Chapel Roads and became part of the local Methodist Episcopal community (which had already been established in 1871) that built the little church. When it came time to name it, sons James, Daniel and Stephenson, all Civil War veterans, suggested the ‘McCabe’ name."

The structure is available for weddings.
