  Church of the Incarnation, Downtown Santa Rosa
by WulfstanTraveller

This is the local Episcopal/Anglican parish church in Santa Rosa. Located downtown, it is the oldest church building in continuous use as such that still survives in Santa Rosa (the Church of One Tree, the former Baptist church, is roughly the same age but is no longer a church). It was completed in 1873.

The redwood-timber building was constructed in such a way that when a larger building was needed in 1885, the church was quartered, drawn apart, and expanded.

It has beautiful stained-glass windows.

This church and its rectory, due to its central location and minimal damage, served as an infirmary and morgue in the wake of the 1906 earthquake.

Address: 550 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa
Directions: It's in the northern part of downtown Santa Rosa on Mendocino Ave. at the intersection with 10th St., several blocks north of Old Courthouse Square and south of College Ave.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
