Little Church of Keystone

Air Date: 02/08/2024

There may be more ornate churches in Nebraska, but none compare to the unique quality of the 'Little Church' in Keystone. The simple board-and-batten building, trimmed in white, served as a place of worship for two faiths. Opened in 1908 with a grand dedication, the church features a Lutheran lectern on one end and a Catholic altar on the other. The church pews are hinged, allowing congregants and parishioners to face the appropriate direction of the service. It is the only known combined church in the state.
