    Thank you for including Pleasant Prairie in your pictorial documentation. I grew up a couple miles down the road from the cemetery and mowed it for several years while in high school. The church is much in need of repair. While it may not be “needed” per say, it is an integral and much loved part of the cemetery. There is currently a movement to gather donations from supports in the community to preserve the building. At this point we are not sure if we will be successful but we are hopeful. If we are successful I can see the church being used during graveside services to provide shelter during inclement weather and possibly providing church services there on a rotational basis. There are so many wonderful historic buildings falling to ruin every year due mostly to lack of funds but also a plan to save them. Many of the buildings in private ownership need so much work that the owners cannot afford to repair the buildings out of pocket so some other approach needs to be devised to preserve them. Your photographic journal may be helpful in bringing attention to this situation. I applaud your efforts!
