Now a drive-thru for motorists needing a java jolt, the lot at the southeast corner of West Washington Street and South Third Avenue in Sequim was for many years a place of worship.

More than a quarter-century ago, when Washington Street was still U.S. Highway 101, passersby would have gazed upon the Gothic Revival-styled Presbyterian Church of Sequim.

The striking building at 279 W. Washington St. served as an unofficial local landmark until October 1989, when it was demolished to make way for an ARCO AM-PM Mini Mart following its congregation’s move to a new location on North Fifth Avenue (now Sequim Community Church). White Cup Espresso currently occupies the former church site.
