Inscription.  A search for a small, classic, wooden church with three side windows and a bell tower, the type built by pioneers as they pushed west, took Heritage Center volunteers several years. The perfect church was finally located in South Superior, Wisconsin. It was moved here in four sections and reassembled on site.

The German Evangelical Immanuel Lutheran Church of the Missouri Synod was organized in 1890. The church was built in 1891, originally at 88th Street and John Avenue. In 1898 the church was moved to Corner 60th St. and Banks Avenue.

It was donated by Maxine Thompson and her family.
 
Erected by New Richmond Heritage Center.
