"Brick" Presbyterian Church

The beautiful, stately, historic church, known familiarly as Brick Church because of its 17-inch thick brick walls, stands solidly in a picturesque setting of prairie land.


The church, organized in 1854 was built in 1872 to last as a house of praise to the Lord. Today's members continue to warmly welcome all who pass through these doors.
