This church, originally built in 1917 in Hardin, Montana by Lutheran Volga German immigrants, is now part of the Big Horn County Historical Museum. Back in its day, my Better Half’s father received his confirmation in this church. The year was 1939. After studying for the sacrament for nearly two years in German, as was common in his tightly-knit community, he suddenly had to relearn everything in English due to the outbreak of World War II in Europe.
