Several years ago, I took a day trip to Lincoln County, Kansas. I have always liked Lincoln County, largely due to its rolling prairie, and surprising architectural gems. One of my favorite buildings in the county is the historic Danish Lutheran Church in the town of Denmark. This area was clearly settled by Scandinavians. This 1878 stone church stands all alone in the middle of rolling prairie and crop land. It is surrounded by a historic cemetery. The locals clearly took a lot of pride in building this simple, but beautiful stone church. It was locked (understandably so) when I arrived, so I was not able to view the interior. I am sure that it is beautiful!
