Wabanica Lutheran Church

Wabanica Lutheran Church was organized in 1904 and was named after Chippewa tribal Chief Wabanaquib, who lived in a log structure for many years, the current building was dedicated (in the same location) in 1958. Several additions and improvements have been made over the years, with the most current one being completed in 2003.
