St. Paul’s Lutheran Church

Although the population of Douglas has dwindled since its heyday in the late 1800s, the Lutheran Church still stands as a reminder of the community’s pioneer past. The building is an exceptionally solid and well-crafted structure, and its physical integrity fortunately has been well-preserved. St. Paul’s is an excellent example of early 20th century German craftsmanship in a remote eastern Washington setting.
