There was no cornerstone for this interesting church, which I assume
was built in the 1880s. It adapts elements from several styles, but
with some naiveté so we would probably be justified in calling
this a vernacular church. Based
on an old postcard, it appears that the building was originally the
German Presbyterian Church.
