Last day in Waverly

Right before we left Waverly, we got to visit Wartburg College. Wartburg is located in Waverly and it's where Melissa went to school. Here we are posing by the building called Old Main. The whole college was housed in this building when it was first in Waverly. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
We also visited one of Melissa's favorite places at Wartburg-the chapel. This building was new when Melissa started college at Wartburg. So beautiful! Melissa also found us some German to read (since we are from Germany)! On the side of the church it reads "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott". Which means "A Mighty Fortress is Our God" in English. Wartburg College is named after the Wartburg castle is Eisenach, Germany and is a Lutheran school. Waverly is a sister-city with Eisenach and the two cities do exchanges and make connections in different ways. The saying on the church is the name of a famous Lutheran hymn. We have enjoyed our stay in Waverly but we are also looking forward to our trip home!
