St. James Episcopal was founded as a mission church for the Dakota Indians (Santee Sioux) settling in the area after being forced out of Minnesota after the 1862 Sioux Uprising.  The first church was built in 1885 but was destroyed by fire in 1925.  A new white frame church was then built and remains today.
