Friedrich Wyneken

For those familiar with Adams County's German Lutheran heritage, the name of Friedrich Wyneken is a historical giant.

Wyneken was crediting with the founding of several churches in northern Adams and southern Allen Counties, including Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church at Friedheim, St. Paul Lutheran and St. John Lutheran Church in Bingen, where the Wyneken School is named in his honor.


Wyneken Memorial Lutheran School was formed in 1969 as an association school from the congregation schools of St. John-Bingen, St. Paul-Preble and Zion-Friedheim Lutheran Churches.  The history of Lutheran education at the congregation schools goes back to the mid-1800's.
