Lutheran families of Mena organized Trinity Lutheran Church in the fall of 1900. In the early days, services were held in both German and English. As the church grew, a white frame church was erected and dedicated to serve the needs of both the church and the Christian Day school. This white frame church building, which has stood at the corner of DeQueen and Oak streets since 1902, is well preserved and stately. It is the oldest church building still in use in the city of Mena today.
