Prairie Bells Grotto

Linton, North Dakota 58552, United States

Created By: North Dakota State University


Prairie Bells Grotto serves as a shrine to the Holy Family. The site inclueds the bells of St. Andrew, St. Anthony, and Holy trinity churches, which no longer exist. Their bells, however, still peel across the prairies and are situated next to the Grotto of the Holy Family. The grotto was constructed out of fieldstone from the surrounding fields and was established by the Vetter family as a testament to their German-Russian heritage.
