This church is no longer standing. The long time pastor, Pastor Walter Wellman died a few years ago and it was closed as most of its members no longer were living or were attending other churches in the area. This church is definitely a part of the history of Edinburg.

Odalen Lutheran Church


Odalen Lutheran Church was established in 1884. Many of the founding fathers immigrated from the Odalen Parish in Norway, so they agreed to call the new organization Odalen Norwegian Lutheran Church.

Odalen held it's last regular church services in June, 2000 with a special closing celebration. Memorial Day services are held in Odalen every May.

The "Church by the Lake" holds fond memories for many people.

Thursday, June 21, 2007 Odalen burned to the ground. The fire was called in about 7:30 PM. What a tragic loss. The Edinburg Fire Department put forth a valiant effort to save the Historical Landmark. We still have the memories.


Jan Johansen does such a beautiful job playing the organ, clavinova and piano for services at Trinity Lutheran Church.
