American Lutheran Church in Hogeland, Montana

A lovingly maintained church that is still in regular use. It was decorated for the upcoming American Thanksgiving Celebration on my visit there in late October.

Northern Montana and northern North Dakota have a wealth of historical Lutheran churches.  Some have been abandoned, several have merged with other congregations and others are still as beautiful as the day they were built. This one definitely falls into the latter category.  A joy to see.

First look inside the front doors.

This is one example of the seven stained-glass windows in the church.
