Building History

This Lutheran congregation made up of recent Scandinavian immigrants, was founded in 1888. According to Paul Dorpat and his web site Dorpat Sherrard Lomont, Its first services were held in the Swedish Lutheran Church. By 1889, this Gothic chapel had been erected, the first of three churches known as the "Norwegian-Danish Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Downtown Seattle area. After 1939, the congregation moved to its fourth home, and changed its name to the "Denny Park Lutheran Church."
