Local Lutheran church celebrates anniversary

The Rev. John Herzer (1904-11), left, and John Goeglein stand on the steps of Zion Lutheran Church in Dix, which is in Thompson Park about 15 miles west of Durango. Zion and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Durango shared Herzer’s preaching skills, and Goeglein helped build both churches in the 1890s. St. Paul’s is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year.
