William Naatz, who was born at Nizternow, Germany, and his wife, Augusta, immigrated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1881. In 1891 they bought an 80-acre farm northwest of Spencer in the Town of Brighton, where they remained until his death in September of 1924. The farm was then owned and operated by their son, John, until his death in 1966.
The farm has the distinction of being the location where the first Lutheran services in this part of the country were held. The services were conducted in a log house in 1873.
