Neuburg Congregational

Neuburg Congregational Church, North Dakota

I saw a photo of Neuberg Congregational Church looking weathered and forgotten, but when I visited it had been recently painted.   This photo was made at the end of a cool day in late May.  The church was built in 1925 by Germans who immigrated by way of Russia.  They had outgrown their original church since founding the congregation in 1898.  More recently, the church was added to the National Register of Historic Places (2007).

North Grand Church,  near Hettinger, North Dakota looks more stable on the outside than it does inside. Serving the nearby Lutherans, the church was active between 1909 and 1969.  There’s a small cemetery in the back of the property and the isolated church sits surrounded by farmland for several miles.
