Churches in Dunn County

Many of the churches in Dunn County technically started much earlier than some of the dates shown here.   The dates on this page reflect mostly the "organized" date or the date when the church building was finally purchused or built.   Before that, services were usually held in the homes of their congregation or in area school houses.   Often, services were conducted in the native languages of their congregation (Norwegian, German, Bohemian, Russian, etc.)   Many Catholic masses were conducted in Latin which served as a universal language.
