Given North Dakota’s long tradition of granite fieldstone churches, Trinity Lutheran is a surprisingly late example of the use of hand-split uncoursed rubble stone and a faithful example of Gothic Revival design. The steep cedar-shingled roof, gabled transepts, and proportions of the three-stage bell tower all give this relatively large church the feel of an earlier period. Sanctuary windows are pointed and the side walls are buttressed. The church is elevated on its site by a rubble-stone retaining wall.
