While exploring the Augusta wine country I drove through the little village of Femme Osage and spotted this church. There is a creek that runs in front of the church so to get there you have to cross an old narrow bridge or cross a low water bridge. The little church was so inviting that my friend that was with me decided we would attend their Sunday service. It was time will spent.
Femme Osage Church, founded in 1833, as the first German Evangelical Church west of the Mississippi River. The church pictured, erected in 1888 is the third structure to house this congregation. The foundation of the current church was constructed using the stones from the previous church. It is situated on the Cappeln-Osage Road in the beautiful Femme Osage Valley, north of Augusta, Missouri.
