Elbe Church, 1944
Elbe Church, 1944

Today, the tiny Elbe Church built in 1906 is beautifully preserved. However, back on November 15, 1944, it looked like it could use a little TLC.

“A founder of the town, Heinrich Lutkens, donated the land and material for the church. Pastor Karl Kilian, who designed this simple yet pleasing building, served his Elbe flock from 1906 to 1933.”
