The Stavekirke is a place for spiritual meditation and worship. It was dedicated as a Christian house of worship in August 1995. The Stavekirke is patterned from an ancient style of church construction found in Norway during the medieval times. This building is both a replica and tribute to Washington Island's large Scandinavian heritage.
