Saving America's Rural Churches addthis
Saving America’s Rural Churches
As farms and ranches spread across the heartland in the 19th and 20th centuries, families established communities and built churches to meet their spiritual needs. As America’s rural population began to decline, many of those churches fell into disrepair. In North Dakota, we’ll see how efforts are underway to preserve these pieces of heartland history.

Preservation North Dakota targets century-old churches and historic buildings throughout North Dakota. The organization works with rural residents to restore the churches and continue its place in the community. See how these symbols of a simpler time are rescued from extinction.
