Caption Zion Lutheran Church confirmation (1934)
Description There were several different congregations of Lutherans on Fidalgo Island. Norwegian Lutherans organized their own church in Anacortes in 1909 and soon built their church at 20th and O Avenue. In 1936, this congregation merged with the Swedish Lutherans of Zion Lutheran Church who had built their church at 21st and O Avenue by 1911. Sometime during this period, Our Savior's Norwegian Lutheran Church of Lake Campbell also merged with the Anacortes Norwegian Lutheran congregation. In 1942, the congregation changed the church's name to Anacortes Lutheran Church; see WF 1555, 1560.
