Walla Lutheran Church, Rural Roberts County, South Dakota

Walla Lutheran Church is located in rural Roberts County, South Dakota, near the town of New Effington.  The Gothic Revival church was built in 1902, a few years after the Swedish Walla Evangelical Lutheran Church was founded.  The grounds also include a cemetery with graves from 1895.  Although I don’t think the church still has normal services, it did look like a wedding may have taken place recently based on leftover decorations on the fence.  The church is included on the National Register of Historic Places.
