Old Hitterdal Cemetery

Section 30, Grove Park Township, Polk County, MN

 The original Hitterdal Lutheran Church of rural Mentor was organized at the home of Haral Jansen on April 2, 1886.  In 1890 a building was moved to the Klob land and this was their fist church.  Charter members were Ole Mathias, Thor Anderson, Hans Buran, Ole Hanson, Harel and John Jansen, Andreas Thorson and Andreas and Lauritz Vollom.  Rev. Heierman was the first pastor.   Later a new larger church was built near Maple Bay, being completed in 1904 and is still active.
