Marker Text Descendants of German pioneers who settled this area in 1850s hold membership in this church. As early as 1853, missionaries such as pastor Philip Zizelmann who rode a donkey, held services in settlers' homes. Church was organized with 13 members on Feb. 15, 1872. On March 17, 1872, a lot was donated; first building was soon erected by the members. Present native stone structure, built 1905 in traditional style, was remodeled and enlarged 1953.
