The Augustus Lutheran Church is notable for being the oldest Lutheran church structure in the country that is continuously used by the same congregation. It was built in the mid 1740s and is still being used as a worship place by the same congregation that initially worked to put it up.

Made mostly out of local materials (from the exteriors to the interior fittings, except for the pulpit which was made in England), the Augustus Lutheran Church has been through a whole lot. It has been used as a hospital and camping site during the American Revolution.

Although, a newer structure was made to replace the Augustus Lutheran Church, it was used again in the late 1950s, even just for the summer and Christmas services only. It was declared as a National Historic Landmark in 1967.
