Prairie Churches

Foreword & Epilogue by Thomas D. Isern

Photos by John Toso

The old churches on the plains and prairies create a cultural landscape like no other; their steeples rise above the horizon as testaments to faith and community. In 2001 the prairie churches of North Dakota captured the heart of the nation, marking the shift from Most Endangered to the salvation of Save America's Treasures. Preservation North Dakota and its partners invested in the people and places and prairie churches that make North Dakota unique. Prairie Churches is the celebration of all that has been accomplished in the first decade of the new millennium. Prairie Churches includes 54 black and white photographs and a gallery of 26 full-color photographs.

Stone Church: A Prairie Parable

By Gene Wunderlich

Stone Church is the story of early Swedish settlers constructing a house of worship in the harsh environment of northern North Dakota. The story tells how a small community of immigrant farmers gathered in a tiny one-room schoolhouse to form a congregation and the later decided to build a "mighty fortress" on the prairie.
