Located on Monona County Road E54 near Moorehead, Iowa, the church was built in 1884 by Danish immigrants, and each year one Sunday service is held, the Sunday preceding Memorial Day, to remember history, family, and fallen service members.

    Thank you for the article about the Ingemann church. I was born on a farm across the road from the church. My grandmother, who was pictured with her husband, planted many of the peonies that bloom at the cemetery. She was a Danish immigrant
    as were many of the original founders of the church. I might add that she was a “happy Dane”.
