    This church was organized in the Salem community on Nov. 22, 1856, by The Rev. Johann G. Ebinger and 17 charter members. Worship services were first held in a log cabin on land deeded by Wilhelm Bohne (.3 mi. SW). In 1913 the church moved to the present site. The second oldest German Lutheran congregation in Washington County, Salem Lutheran Church has led in the development of the area. Programs have included sponsorship of a cemetery (1869), a school (1886), Sunday School (1897), Women's Auxiliary (1897), Luther League (1900), and Junior Lutherans (1947).
