St. Michael's Lutheran Cemetery, is located in Lewiston Township, Columbia County, WI, west of Portage on County highway O, 6 miles to Church Road, right 1/2 mile, on left side of road.

St. Michaels Lutheran Church had its first pastor in 1859. It was called the Mother church of St. Johns Lutheran Church-Missouri synod on West Wisconsin in Portage. St. Michaels stopped having services by 1927. The building was sold to Hugo Meyer who moved it to Dekorra. This information was provided by Mrs. Rollie Schultz, at this time in October of 2005, she is probably the only living person who still remembers going to church there. Anna Mae.
