Odalen Cross - Where Church Burned

On the site of what was the Odalen Lutheran Church now stands a monument to the faith of the settlers who came to this area. Standing where the altar once did is an 80-foot cross. There are also remnants of the church reclaimed from the ashes of a fire in 2007.

A granite memorial declares "To God Be The Glory."
