Significance: The Jacobsville Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church is a simple frame structure with unpretentious interiors. It was built by Finnish quarriers soon after the sandstone deposits were discovered near Jacobsville. The church, kept in good repair, has continued to serve the Finns until the present day. It represents a long tradition of unostentatious Lutheran worship.
