The Wittenberg Academy
 The Wittenberg Academy was founded by a group of German and Norwegian Lutheran [sic], and operated from 1901-1913. The Academy enrolled young people aged 13-18. It provided a thorough Christian education as well as instruction in courses usually taught in high schools and business colleges.

The Academy site has had a varied history. The Martin Luther Orphan Home utilized the site first, from 1885 to 1898. After the Academy closed in 1913 [sic] the Bethany Indian Mission used the facilities until 1917. In 1920, the building was put in to [sic] service for Homme Home for the Aged and became known as the Upper Home [sic] until the 1950's.

Today the structure has been remodeled and is a private residence.
