The Friends of the Grass Lake Church Continue to Maintain the Restored Historic Landmark
in 1898 the Grass Lake Mission church is the last remaining building of
the original town of Grass Lake established in 1883. The town consisted
of several businesses, two churches and the Edison School. The town
began to die out when bypassed by the railroad. The church sat idle
since the 1960’s, until the Friends of the Grass Lake Church was formed
and began to restore the structure. The building now owned by the
Kanabec History Center.
This piece of Kanabec County history is
available for your special occasion.
