St. John’s Lutheran Church

Location: Spring Valley, WI

Architect: ADG

Project Size: 10,500 SF

There was a fire at St. John’s Lutheran Church, and the church burned to the ground. The fire was due to a lightning strike during a heavy rainstorm. The original bell fell to the ground, but it was not damaged due to the soft rain-soaked ground. A new one-story structure was able to be built on the existing site reusing some of the design elements of the old church as well as the original bell. It is a stunning church in a quaint and very visible setting in Spring Valley.
