Lutheran Church, Pioneer Village, Minden, Nebraska

A typical church design, seen all across the United States for many decades as pioneers moved west and took their faith along with them. The family shown are visitors, not churchgoers in this image. In the era this picture was taken women wore hats and gloves to church and boys would be expected to dress in a suit and tie like the grown men.
