Zion Lutheran Church is another listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Victorian Gothic church was built in 1883, and it served the Norwegian immigrants who settled widely in the area. The building has faced some battles with the weather over the years – a tornado shifted the Victorian Gothic church off its foundation in 1902 and rods were added to stabilize the building. Lightning also hit the church in 1979 and burned the spire down to the belfry, but it was rebuilt. There is a cemetery next to the church where many of these early settlers were buried.
This church and cemetery below named Bethany Lutheran was only a few minutes away, but seems to have been built much later in 1955.
