Oldenburg, Indiana

Historic Oldenburg

Church Outline

To visit Oldenburg is to be in “small town” rural Germany itself. Platted in 1837 by German immigrants, it was named for their home province in North Germany.

Oldenburg, called “The Village of Spires” for its magni cent steeples, has century old stone and brick buildings, pressed tin facades, crafted cornices, and bilingual street signs, attesting to its old world influence.

The town, with 80 of 115 historical homes constructed prior to 1900, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

Oldenburg Pride

Browse a few of recent projects, as we are currently working on creating a complete list of the projects we have been involved in.
