    • St. Paul's Lutheran Church

      St. Paul's, associated with St. Peter's, Heidelberg, was founded in 1852 by Rev. Franz Adam Peifer (1852-1859). Land was donated for a cement block church (since known as Allemang Church) and cemetery, which were located several miles north of Erbsville. The church was completed in 1853 and the Kirchenbuch (Church Book) was begun in the next year, 1854, by Rev. Peifer. The present yellow brick church was built in 1877 in the village. Rev. Peifer died in 1859 and in 1860 Rev. Daniel Stahlschmidt began his ministry to the two congregations of St. Paul's and St. Peter's, Heidelberg; he was followed by Rev. J. Brezing in 1873 who ministered to the congregation until 1887. Services in German were conducted in this church from the beginning until 1939 when German language services were discontinued. An addition was built on the back of the church in 1952.
