Peace Lutheran Church, in Baldwin, Wis., was torn down this past week.
A stately red-brick church that towered over a small town in western Wisconsin for 109 years has reached the end of its days, despite an effort by some in the community to save it.
According to a published report, the vote was 113 to 19 to “deconstruct” the 109 year-old local landmark known as “Old Red Brick Church”. Since 1905, the building has stood just south of I-94 on the west side of Highway 63 and the intersection of CTY N in rural Baldwin. The same report also states there are to be some provisions to the motion allowing for salvage and preservation of the salvaged items.
