Search Saint Jakobi Lutheran Cemetery:

St. Jakobi Evangelical Lutheran Church has been known in the Shawano community as "the Church in the Pines." Tall 70-foot white pines have provided a picturesque setting for the church and parish hall for many years.

Located 3 miles north of Shawano on Hwy. 47 and a mile west on County Road A. Church services began as early as the 1880's in a log church. Founding members each donated logs for its construction.

In 1908 the second church building was built for $4,400. The current church building was dedicated on Reformation Day, 2006.

Many of the members are descendants of the early German settlers, Jakobi is German for James. In many obituaries and vital records the name St. James has been interchanged with St. Jakobi, which leads to confusion with the larger St. James congregation in the City of Shawano.
