Early churches


Early Churches
Gossip had it that the people of Thiensville in the early
days were Godless people because they had no church
building with a tall steeple in its midst. This was a
silly conception. Just because there was no physical
building in Thiensville called a church, it cannot be
said that the people were Godless. They could, and quite
a number did, belong to other churches located in Mequon
or other communities. Still others carried their church
right with them in their hearts.
In the late 18th century and early 19th century, the
following churches were already built in Mequon, namely,
Freistadt Trinity, Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Church on the
Wauwatosa Rd., Ev. Wisconsin Lutheran Church on the
Cedarburg Rd., 1/2 mile north of the Milwaukee County
Line, St. James Cr tholic Dhurch on Range Line and Mequon
Rd., St. John's Ev. Lutheran Wisconsin synod on Mequon
Road, 1/4 mile south of hwy. 141. Since that time the
following churches were built in Mequont United Methodist
Chuirh, St. Boniface Episcopal Church, Crossroads Pres-
byterian Church, Missouri Synod Lutheran, A United Church
of Christ, Wis. Lutheran Synod, Thiensville, St. Cecelia
Catholic Church, Grace Lutheran, American Lutheran in
Thiensville.
