Minnehaha County, S.D. (USA) – East Nidaros Lutheran Church is located near Baltic, S.D. in rural Minnehaha County. There’s a beautiful cemetery across the gravel road from the church. The church and cemetery stand atop a hill and are lined with towering spruce trees. East Nidaros is one of four area churches that are home to the original Nidaros Congregation, chartered in 1868.
