Cross Church
Above: The Church of The Redeemer was erected in 1857 and when two "wings" were added in 1867 it became known as the "Cross Church." At one time it was the largest Norwegina-Lutheran church in America with a seating capacity of 1200 people.It also became the "mother church" of at least half a dozen offspring churches. The church was located across the road from the cemetery on County Road G a mile north of Scandinavia. It was torn down in 1928 and some of the lumber was used to construct two barns. Below: If a person were to visit the cemetery today, it would be possible to determine where the church was originally located using the tall monument shown as it is still standing today.
