HistoryThe church was established in 1873 by C. Rydholm who came to Golden from Burlington, Iowa. The church was built on land donated by Loveland and Harsh. The trustees in 1873 were C. P. Johnson, S. Bergstrom, William Johnson, Carl Nollin, Andrew Anderson and J. O. Johnson. According to Dave Crawford, who remembers playing in it as a boy, the church was a small, red brick building. The church was razed c. 1920.
