Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon
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.
