Welcome to the Estonian Evangelical Martin Luther Church

Estonian Evangelical Martin Luther Church in Gleason, WI is the first Estonian church built in North America over one hundred years ago.

Since then, it has become a historic icon for Estonians and Latvians who left their homeland to escape from tyranny, war and religious oppression.

The Little Church even in it’s present weathered state remains a monument to all those who suffered under communist rule for over half a century and all those who lost their lives in the fight for freedom.

It has become an icon for Lincoln County Wisconsin Tourism as well. Thousands of visitors find this remotely located remnant of Estonian immigration history annually as a must see attraction and or spiritual comfort.
