These grounds were the site of three Immanuel Lutheran Churches of German  Valley. The Congregation was organized in 1856 and met at the homes of members until the first church was built in 1867. A larger church was built in 1894 which was struck and burned by lightning in 1906. A third church was built in 1907 and was razed in 1953. The present Immanuel Lutheran Church is located in Mt. Horeb at 310 West Main Street.
This marker was erected by Mr. and Mrs. Walter F. Wirth
