Trondhjem Norwegian Lutheran Church, Lonsdale, Minnesota

The Trondhjem Norwegian Lutheran Church is near Lonsdale, Minnesota, about 35 miles south of Minneapolis.  The church was built in 1899, replacing a 20 year old building in order to add more interior space.  The style is a mix of Greek Revival and Gothic Revival with some medieval Norwegian elements thrown in for good measure.  The accompanying cemetery’s oldest graves date from the beginning period of the church (1877).  A very detailed history of both this church and the Norwegian immigration patterns into Minnesota is included on the National Register of Historic Places website.
