Prior to the Civil War, a Lutheran
log church built on the North Fork
housed a growing congregation. The
uilding, renamed Camp Luther, was
used by soldiers from both sides
during the war. On March 1. 1862
a Union force under Col. George
Latham captured Confederate militia
under Capt. Joseph Lantz. It was
burned before end of war, possibly
by local women to prevent misuse.
