Immanuel Lutheran Church (LCMS), Rural Schuyler, NE

Built in 1917, Immanuel is gem of a rural church located northwest of Schuyler. It's an excellent example of a modified English Gothic church with an interior that's been left relatively untouched.

Rather than a typical rectangular nave, Immanuel employs more of a square nave, thus bringing the congregation closer to the altar. A pipe organ was installed in the 1950s; the builder is unknown.

Interestingly, the candelabras on the altar appear to contain bulbs with a carbon filament - something rather rare, as carbon filament bulbs haven't been produced on a large scale for a very long time.
