The Only Church in My Village

My village of roughly four-thousand residents....has only one church....a Lutheran operation.  No Catholic church.

There just were never any Catholics in the village....if you go back three-hundred or five-hundred years ago. Maybe they got run-off during the Thirty-Years War, or it just wasn't a popular place for Catholics....I don't know.

So this church?  It was built in 1730 and is noted by the locals having a unique feature with the organ right above the altar.

Size-wise?  I've never been in the church....but I'm told you might be able to squeeze 350 people into the oddly shaped building.  Yeah, it is six-sided, which you don't see that many buildings like this.
