Although Eagle Lake Lutheran Church was organized in 1867, its roots go back to a church known as New Sweden in 1859. Initially, this congregation included most of the Scandinavian settlements in what was then Monongalia County, but other congregations were formed from this original church, leaving the name New Sweden to the settlement at Eagle Lake. Shortly before the Dakota War of 1862, its name was changed to Eagle Lake Church. However, after evacuating during the uprising, the majority of the membership never returned, and nine were killed.
