The United Presbyterian Church of Shedd (also known as Valley Rose Chapel) is a historic Presbyterian church at 30045 OR 99 East in Shedd, Oregon. It was built in 1892 in a Gothic Revival style and was added to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1998.[1]

Its NRHP nomination argued it to be "a graceful, wood-frame Gothic Revival church, bestowed with a substantive role in local history", being located just a few miles from the Linn County location of the first United Presbyterian Church "in the entire world" to be formed. And this Shedd church drew from those congregations.[2]
