Our 150th Anniversary

150th Anniversary Logo
Faithful German Lutheran families found their way from southern Wisconsin to what was called, at that time, the Town of Hartland.  There were the Henry Burmeister, Fred Zernicke, Gottlieb Manthei, August Kallies, and Karl Stern families.  Over 150 years ago, in 1861, St. Paul Lutheran Church was founded with Rev. I. N. Beyer of Caledonia conducting the first worship service.  It was not until 1863 that St. Paul was actually organized.  In June of 1863, Rev. Peter Heinrich Dicke, a pastor from Frankentrost, Michigan, accepted a call to Belle Plaine, arriving there in June of 1863.  Soon after, he made his way into the forest to find the people who settled in Shawano and Hartland (Bonduel).  He found five families in Hartland who came to the first worship services.
