The Lone Star Presbyterian Church denotes the strong religious faith of the settlers. The Charming white country church was built in 1915 north of Gem, Kansas. In 1988, the building was moved to the museum site. It was the third time the building had been moved.
The country church was a vital part of the lives of the people living on the prairie. Church groups or Sunday Schools were quickly organized and were served by circuit riders who preached at several points on the circuit. These groups often met in homes or a school house until a church could be built.
Located at the Prairie Museum of Art and History Complex.
