Golden Valley Norwegian Lutheran Church, South Dakota (Harding County)

A large number of homesteaders from Norway began to settle in this quiet part of South Dakota in the early 1900s.  As the sign indicates, Golden Valley Norwegian Lutheran Church was built in 1921.  It’s a frame building with a gabled roof  in the “rural Gothic” style seen in some of the other churches in the area.  There’s a small cemetery to the left of the church and an outhouse to the right. The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places about 30 years ago and is now privately owned.
