Inscription.  The Blue Springs Lutheran Church, once Patterson's Church, served as the site of worship for the Greene County German settlers since before 1811. During the 1863 Civil War Battle of Blue Springs, its second brick building served as a hospital and the cemetery as a mass burial ground. The cemetery contains 32 known Civil War soldiers' graves. The third and current building, a Folk Victorian with Gothic and Revival influences was erected in 1893. On November 13, 2017, the National Park Service listed the Blue Springs Church and Cemetery in the National Register of Historic Places.
