This building is super interesting to see. Not as large as you might think but still amazing architecturally. Also a nice walking/contemplation path in the woods beside it. Definitely a must see.

There are no words to describe the feeling this church creates in one's being.
It's used as a meditation center and for special occasions(weddings, etc.) by local and visitors alike.
Built totally by hand, as a tribute to God and the builder's Scandinavian Heritage, it is a masterpiece of construction and purpose.
Since my first visit, the place is never far from my thoughts and it draws me back time and time again.
Stop here and soothe your soul.

This is a reproduction of a StavKirke that was built in Norway in 1150! I've seen these stunning churches (Kirk) in Norway. We are so fortunate that the Washington Island inhabitants honored their Scandinavian heritage by building this. Just Breathtaking! Peaceful and awe inspiring.

Washington Island is beautiful, but the church is a must do. You would think that you were in Norway. Actually a friend of mine from Norway said it looked like it was in Trondheim.

There is a meditative sort of walk through the woods with bible passages. It is very peaceful and quiet. The church itself is amazing.

This was absolutely gorgeous. It is closed due to covid but still so pretty to see the structure and the uniqueness of the building.
