NUMEROUS TIMES I’VE PHOTOGRAPHED these side-by-side country churches along Wisconsin State Highway 21 just west of Shennington:
Beautiful, aren’t they? St. John’s and St. Peter’s Lutheran. German and Danish.
Not once have I stopped to investigate why two houses of worship, seemingly from the same time period, are separated only by a cement parking lot.
I should stop, shouldn’t I?
For now, though, I must rely on information published on Waymarking.com. Because that info is copyrighted, you’ll need to click here to read what I learned.
Every place has a story.
If you know anything about these two churches, please submit a comment so that we can all learn more. I’m certain there are stories to be told.
