Renner, S.D. (USA) – Renner Lutheran Church was originally named Old Nidaros. Renner Lutheran Church is one of four area churches that are home to the original Nidaros Congregation, chartered in 1868. Click HERE for more history featuring all four churches in the congregation.
The sign in front of the church reads: “Old Nidaros – The Traveling Church. Rebuilt 1878 from timbers of wind-wrecked church three miles south from Baltic. Moved to Baltic 1912. Moved to Renner 1939. Oldest church in use in South Dakota.”
