"The St. James United Church of Christ has served the old rural community of Charlotte for many years.

The St. James United Church or Christ was built in 1901; it was enlarged in 1942. Twenty acres or property were bought in 1860 from John Frederick and Anna Wolbrink for $10. Church services were held in German until 1940. This impressive Church has lancet pointed arches and vertical side pilasters separating them; a protruding square shaped tower has a pointed spire. The interior or the Church has the original curved wooden Church pews. This building is an example or modified Victorian Gothic architecture. The cemetery in the rear has many old tombstones inscribed in German." ~ DNR Historic Survey   PDF pages 241 -244
