Saint Petri Lutheran

St. Petri Lutheran Church, Gary, Minnesota

St. Petri Lutheran was built circa 1880 a mile east of Gary, Minnesota.  The welcome sign states that the final service was April 24th, but I couldn’t say whether it was this year (2018) or not.  The church was unlocked, so I went in and found that the pews had been removed but a lot of the church’s decorations and records remained.  There were old annual reports scattered about with dates of 2003 and 2004, so people have been looking around inside, but fortunately there wasn’t any obvious vandalism yet.   There’s an accompanying cemetery with graves also dating to the 1880s.
