Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church

The historic Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church was originally from Hampton, Nebraska, as the Danish Lutheran Church. Available as a unique setting for weddings, baptisms, or other services, the ‘little white church’, neatly trimmed in country green, is nestled on the south end of the museum grounds. Built in 1888, the church stands symbolic of the thousands of rural churches that once peppered the great plains. The church capacity is 110 people, and while there is no heat or air conditioning in the church,  dressing rooms & modern restrooms are located on-site.

This attractive main building displays beautiful marble flooring, incredible twin spiral staircases and four fountains providing an enchanting and classy environment. Edward Durell Stone, designer of the Kennedy Center of Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., also designed the Stuhr Building, which opened to the public in 1967. Cronin Hall, located in the Stuhr Building, is available for smaller meetings or gatherings. An Auditorium is available for speaking engagements.


The Multi-Purpose Room, as well as the Library, both located in the Edgar & Frances Reynolds Research Center, are available for smaller meetings and retreats.


 

Hornady Family Arbor

Ten-foot wide paths wind through the picturesque environment you’ll find in the Hornady Family Arbor. Complemented by a pond, windmill, wooden bridges, flower gardens, shrubs and picnic areas, this tree-filled haven is a peaceful, relaxing sanctuary for your next family reunion or company picnic. Sit for a spell on a shady bench in the Henry Fonda Rose Garden, or stand on the wooden bridge and feed the many ducks residing in the Arboretum. Admirers of flora and fauna alike will enjoy the varieties of flowers growing here in the arbor, from lilacs to irises and daisies to lilies.
