Trinity Lutheran Church

Originally built in 1884 with a rural congregation, the church closed after economic hardship in 2006. Instead of seeing this beautiful church sold or dismantled, it was agreed to move it to the Heritage Hausbarn Park in Manning, Iowa.

On June 6, 2006 the church was transported over 11 miles of rolling Iowa hills to its new location. It took 4 hours to move the building and contents fully intact!

Watch a video of the church being moved, as featured on "Monster Moves"!

I had originally wanted an outdoor wedding because I personally feel closer to God through nature, but this church has such a unique history, that I couldn't pass up!

The church is available for non-denominational Christian events and open to the public for touring. For tour and rental information, contact Marilyn at the Manning Heritage Foundation office 712-655-3131
