HISTORICAL NOTE

The Friedens Lutheran Church of Lincoln, Nebraska, formerly known as the German Evangelical Lutheran Friedens Church, was organized on February 15, 1907 by Rev. E. Pfeiffer and Luther P. Ludden. The church building, located at 6th and D Streets, was constructed at a cost of $17,000 and dedicated on December 1, 1907. Despite various modifications over the years, the facility retains its distinctive architectural character and continues to serve the needs of this congregation strongly affiliated with Germans from Russia.
