Quick Description: Old, run down church with a nearly indecipherable date stone over the front entrance. The local preservation society seems to be fixing up this place.

This church is closed and looks abandoned. The local historical society, located next door in an old Victorian home, seems to have dibs on this structure as they have a sign hanging over the front entrance. Also, there is an interesting little bell tower on top which. On both sides of the front entrance are elongated, 4-paned stained glass, rounded at the top. There is almost a dozen old churches in this town, many of them 100 + years. This one was the only one I found abandoned. The church is a contributing structure for the historic district.
The date stone reads:
ENGLISH EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN
How Amiable are Thy Tabernacles,
O Lord of Hosts
