Early Norse pioneers who realized a need for a house of worship built the first Norwegian Lutheran Church in western Dane County from logs in the winter of 1851-52. First services held May 27, 1852 by the Rev. A.C. Preus. Previous itinerant pastors included C. Clausen, E Eielson, J.W.C. Dietrichson. Resident pastors from 1854 were P.A. Rasmussen, J.N. Fjeld, P.J. Solberg, and Knudt Hageseth who conducted last services in 1887 when congregation moved into a new church.
