Built around 1915, the vernacular Shingle Style chapel was originally built as a mission by Italian Americans on land donated to them by the Heywood-Wakefield Company across the street. Over the years the building has been used by several religious denominations, including the Christ Community Baptist Church, the Saint Sava Serbian Church, the Hope Alliance Church, and currently the Saint Parascheva Romanian Orthodox Church.
