You may have driven by the building with those odd porches and wondered what is the story behind that building. Come see the inside story!

See the 1890s rare example of Queen Anne-style architecture at the home of a Carpenter who was a baker, owner of one of the largest independent bakery operations in the country during the first half of the 20th century. Climb the stairs past artistically tiled and carved fireplaces, oaken sliding doors from days gone by, wooden bannisters that continue to stand the test of time
all are attached to Hope Lutheran Church.
Why did they build a church attached to a mansion? Hope’s congregation formed in 1924, and the present-day church finished its decade of construction in the late 1950s. These architectural treasures have complemented each other in service to the community for more than seven decades.
