Short Creek Church and Cemetery

A Lutheran church and cemetery north of Columbus, North Dakota.

The church was restored in 1981 and must have looked top-notch at the time. Sadly, little upkeep has been done in recent times, but . . . still a beauty. On a positive note, the cemetery is still maintained. 

The church is open . . . don't forget to sign the visitor's registry!

Pineapples embossed on the tin panels surrounding the interior of the church.

The unisex outhouse.  Note the "horns" on the roof peaks.

  1. It always freaks me out to see national flags displayed in a church. The Anglicans are bad for that too. Plus they hang battle standards from the rafters as well. I believe in the separation of church and state. And war should never be celebrated in a Christian church, in my opinion.

  2. Is it not OK for church goers to be patriotic?
