This modest, frame, vernacular Gothic Revival building is located near Red Cloud. The church is significant to the major theme of Willa Cather's writings in a very general sense, that is, as one of the few remaining small, frame country churches in Webster County which were referred to time and again in her writings. Additionally, this church's association with Scandinavian immigrants corresponds well with Cather's overwhelming interest and love for the European settlers of the area.
