St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Casselton, Dakota Territory, 1880s

Built in 1886, it was designed by British-born Fargo architect George Hancock and built by stonemason Nathaniel Maconachie. It was consecrated in August, 1887, and shared ministers with the Old Stone Church (Calvary Episcopal) in Buffalo for many years.

After the congregation dwindled, the building was sold in 1950 to the Casselton Mennonite Church, which worshiped in it until 2002, when the building was closed again. In 2004, the Mennonite congregation donated the church to the Casselton Heritage Center, Inc., which now operates it as a community center.

On December 3, 1992, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.[1][2][3]
