1. Trinity Lutheran Church Marker
Inscription. This congregation traces its history to 1902, when it was organized in the Albert Schoolhouse. A sanctuary built here in 1902 was replaced in 1904, and this structure was erected in 1928. Worship services were conducted in the German language until 1950. A fine example of the Gothic Revival style of architecture, the church features fine details in its arched window and door openings, Gothic steeple, and original pressed metal siding.
