The first Fair Oaks Church

4300 Watkins

Up the hill from the Ice House on the northeast corner of Watkins Drive and Sacramento Street is the first Fair Oaks church, built in 1897. The residents took a vote as to which religious denomination it would serve, and the Methodists prevailed, but it was really multidenominational. Several years later, an extension was built off the back to house the rectory. After the Federated Church was built at the south side of the village, the steeple was removed from this church and the building renovated as a residence.
