Text of marker:

The Immanuel Lutheran Church was built in 1861 on land deeded to the congregation by the Pilot Knob Mining Co.  The church served as a Union hospital during the Battle of Pilot Knob and telegrams found in the building after the battle indicate that it may have been temporarily used as a Union headquarters.
