This picture shows the dedication of the Evangelical Covenant Church of Lake Norden, South Dakota, U.S.A. in 1903. It sat 2 miles east and one mile south of Lake Norden South Dakota. The church was built on Olaf Person’s property near Lake John. Olof Person and his family were very instrumental in building the church from the start.
This was probably a lake side service or baptism after the church had been moved.
These pictures show the church after it was moved into the town of Lake Norden, these pictures were taken around 1915 after the church had been added onto.
I have another post that describes the moving of the church, with the two steam engines, from the country into town. My Grandfather Charles Wayrynen was one of the steam engine operators and the other one was Louie Hendrickson. The moving of the church is described in a previous post, ‘Evangelical Covenant Church’ that can be found in my archives. It also shows A picture of the new church building that is built on one level.
