In 1915, the community had a population of 200, a public school, two Lutheran churches, a grange hall and several stores. As of 1992, one church remained and the school, grange hall and stores were closed.
Macksburg Lutheran Church was built in 1892 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. Early members of the church were originally from Germany and Austria, so all services were conducted in German until 1929, and alternated between English and German until 1943.
