This is the original Crow River Finnish Apostolic Church built in 1886. It has a unique interior of embossed tin sheets in 6 different patterns. The outside is also covered in tin sheets. The pews are handmade from white pine. The back pew, which faces the back of the church, was near the warmth of the wood stove to allow mothers and children to sit there. The Authentic 1895 pump organ was gifted to the church by Nels Reisanan. It is still played occasionally for special services and weddings. In 1912 the minister of this church took a trip to Finland with his wife and daughter. The daughter died while in Finland and on their trip back they sailed on the “Titanic” and unfortunately they were among the 1,517 to parish. Because of its unusual structure the move from its original site in French Lake to this current location in 1975 proved to be very difficult. This church is still used in the summers for small wedding ceremonies and is available for rent.
