What the Locals Say

Don’t Miss Frankford Church

Restored in 2010, Frankford Church was originally constructed in 1897 by residents of what was then the small farm community of Frankford. The surrounding prairie land and cemetery give visitors a glimpse at what this area looked like at the turn of the previous century.
