First Estonian Lutheran Church

    Newer Older

    This is the First Estonian Lutheran Church in the US, located in Lincoln County, Wisconsin.

    It was built in 1914 and was the first Estonian church building erected in America. It has been in disrepair for some time. There has been interest in restoring it, but I am not sure how they are faring with this.

      This looks straight out of a twilight-zone movie, or something. Looks great in mono!

      Hard to describe why, could be the forest setting and the beautiful sunlit wall, or the antiquity of the building, or just the light through the trees...but I like it and I think it's special. Thanks for the info in the caption too :)

      What an amazing find and image. Love it all tucked away back there. Seems as if you had to go searching for it. Know about the Ukranian Lutheran churches from that part of the USA, but not the Estonian. Interesting.
