The neighborhood surrounding the church is typical of
Chicago's North Side neighborhoods and reflective of a
diversity of languages and cultures. Minnekirken serves
as a reminder of a neighborhood heritage long past in
which Scandinavians played a significant part. During
the first half of this century there were several
Norwegian language churches in the Logan Square area and
over 20 Norwegian churches in the metropolitan area.
Minnekirken, which means "Memorial Church" in Norwegian,
was first built by Norwegian immigrants as Christ Church
in 1912. In 1934, the name was changed to its present
name, in part because of the war memorial which was
dedicated that year in the center of the circular
thoroughfare located across from the church.
