The Little Brown Church
By: Department 56 ®
This historic congregational church was built in the early 1860s in Nashua, a small town in central Iowa. The parish was an active one, but the people tired of meeting in various locations. Desiring their own church, they worked hard with donated materials to complete the structure during the hard times of the civil war. When it was time to paint the church, the only affordable paint to protect the wood was brown, certainly not their first choice, but they were grateful. Each year, close to 500 couples from around the world marry there. The first weekend of August is reserved for a reunion of couples married there, numbering over 75,000 to date. Set of 2 includes a sign.
