Swedish Lutheran Church, Pigeon Hill St., Pigeon Cove, Mass., circa 1900

This is an old photograph from the collection of Merry Seppala of Pigeon Cove. It shows the Swedish Lutheran Church that once stood on Pigeon Hill Street, where Pigeon Hill Court begins. In 1949, the church was moved to Stockholm Avenue and converted to a private residence.

As I noted in a previous post, this was one of three churches built in the Pigeon Cove area of Rockport by Swedish immigrants who came here to work in the quarries. The other churches were the Swedish Methodist Church at 145 Granite Street and the Swedish Evangelical Church at 111 Granite Street.

I do not know the date of this photograph. Merry has several others in her collection from around the turn of the century. This appears to be from about that time.
