|Salem-Baum Evangelical Church|
On May 11, 1845 a German speaking Protestant congregation was organized at the Philip Baum residence near here. That same year a log church was erected & a cemetery was opened on 6 acres immediately north of this spot which was donated by Heinrich Mueller & Philip Hoffman in 1883. A stone church was built on this plot of land donated by Anton Sparwasser. The church was dissolved on Oct 1 1938 because of declining membership and poor roads.
