Near Friesland in Columbia County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
In 1867 the congregation decided to build a church.
James Inglehart offered this site as a gift, but the congregation insisted on a legal land purchase. They offered Inglehart $25 but he would only accept $10. The land deed is dated April 6, 1867.
Inglehart hauled lumber and stone for the church, for which he charged nothing, and offered free room and board for the carpenters in his home, which was located about 300 feet to the south.
The church was completed in 1867 and named St. Paul's, but has been commonly known as "Inglehart Church" ever since.
