Founded in 1885 by settlers from Nashville, Tennessee, Nashville became a thriving community after the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad built its tracks to the town site.
Many of the settlers were German Lutherans and they found the first Lutheran church in town. Beginning in 1890, they met in the homes of parishioners and in public buildings until a church building was built in 1904.
