Our Saviour's Lutheran Church
Registered Michigan Historic Site
Organized as a Scandinavian congregation in 1868, Our Saviour's became a Danish church in 1875 and served the American Evangelical Lutheran Synod until 1962. First used for worship in 1869, the building escaped damage in the Fire of 1871 and was completed with the addition of the tower in 1888. Danish architectural features are present, particularly the weathervane-topped spire, and the Danish language was used in services until mid-twentieth century. Our Saviour's is now a museum of Danish life in America.
Erected 1972 by Michigan Department of State. (Marker Number L0119.)
