St. Paul's United Church of Christ of
The St. Paul's United Church in the city of Laramie
was built between 1890 and 1891 and expanded in 1922.
Since 1983 it has been a historic building worth seeing.
The church is the oldest surviving church building in
the city. The church is very reminiscent of German
village churches due to its window paintings and wooden
furnishings. This is not surprising, since the church
was initially founded for the German community and was
initially called "German Evangelical Lutheran St. Paulus
Church" and was still known as the "German Church".
