This stained glass window is mounted on a wall in Zion Lutheran Church on beaver avenue. The church just celebrated their 150th anniversary in November. They are the oldest Lutheran church in Des Moines. The window was from on of the churches former buildings that used to reside on 3rd and Chestnut. They don’t know who or when it was made but they suspect that it was made sometime in the 1880s when the building was made. The current pastor John Kline, believes that the information may be in the old board minutes which are very fragile and all in German. They plan on undertaking the process of recovering the information in the new year.
