Members of the crew seemed to be very impressed with the people of Missouri, telling us that Missourians were some of the friendliest people they’ve encountered in their travels.

Lippstadt Cemetery

Lippstadt2

Originally the Lippstadt Church was built from logs in 1853. It was one of the first German Evangelical churches in Warren County, Mo. Then, in 1877, a new church was built out of brick for just $4,500. The church hosted regular services until 1951, when the congregation disbanded. Many of the parishioners moved to a church in town. In 1968, the Lippstadt-Freidens Cemetery Association was formed to take over the care and maintenance of the property. Even without electricity to the church, the association hosts two special services each year–Memorial Day and Christmas. During the winter service, a wood stove is lit to keep attendees warm. Individuals visit the cemetery to celebrate or reflect on the lives of their loved ones buried there. The grave markers are names familiar to the farm community. -Mindy Ward
