REMARKS:The Eden Lutheran Church, also known as the Elgarose Lutheran Church, was established ca. 1910 by Swedish immigrants and Swedish-heritage families from the American Midwest. The church merged with Faith Lutheran Church, Roseburg, in 1957. The church building was destroyed by fire in 1964.; This collection contains a photocopy of the parish register ca. 1930, a typed transcription of that register, and two narrative histories of the church. One, "History of the Eden Lutheran Church" [prepared in 1995], is by Patricia A. Holmquist Gerretsen, whose family were members of the church.
