Minnesota is full of undiscovered treasures; however, its beautiful churches are a few of the treasures that have been kept intact with their original structure and design. Some of these beautiful structures include: Hennepin Ave United Methodist Church, Assumption Chapel, Episcopal Church of Our Savior, Stella Marie Chapel, and Hopperstad Stave Church.
Hennepin Ave United Methodist Church is located in Minneapolis. This church is modeled after churches in England. Its English Rural Gothic architecture models the popular model of the period. Assumption Chapel was rebuilt in 1951 in response to a natural disaster that hit the area. Also known as Grasshopper Chapel, the church was built in hopes that the locust plague would end. A third church, recognizable by its red door, and Tudor and Gothic design, is the Episcopal Church of Our Savior located in Little Falls. The church was erected in 1903. The churches are surrounded by the ever changing seasons that Minnesota provides. One such church that is highlighted by its surroundings is the Stella Marie Chapel in Collegeville. Located on a peninsula, the church is only reachable by canoe or hiking. Finally, the quaint Hopperstad Stave Church in Moorhead offers a picturesque scene that attract many photo opportunities. This church was built as a replica to a church located in Norway and is recognizable by the viking art located in the building and its wooden structure. Follow Mighty Fortress Church on Facebook.
