Häädemeeste St Michael's Lutheran Church

Häädemeeste Lutheran Church was built in 1874, about the same time as the Apostolic Orthodox Church, and even though it is smaller than the latter, it is definitely a worthy opponent. The nature stone church in historicist-eclectic style is enlivened by red brick details and two rows of windows with sharp arches on the upper ones and segmented arches on the lower.
The house of God was given a slate roof when it was built. People tell a story about how wealthy ship-owners promised to buy the material needed for the roof, so the builders decided to take what they could and selected the most expensive material.
