Tiny Church: Morning Star Chapel
Elk Horn, Iowa
Built in 1951 by Charles Johann Walensky, an 83-year-old Danish immigrant who lived across the state in Waterloo, Iowa. He died in 1959, his daughter kept it for the next ten years, then she got old and turned it over to her nephew, LaVerne Walensky, who kept it in his backyard for the next 26 years. When he got old he donated it to the Danish Immigrant Museum, and it was packed onto a trailer and driven to Elk Horn in 1995.
The church is only 6 x 8 feet, has four small pews, and has always been a popular spot for weddings.
The adjacent museum is not really known for this tiny church, but it is known for possessing Victor Borge's first piano.
