1. St. Peterís Church Marker
Inscription. St. Peter's Catholic Church was established in 1846. The first structure was a log church built in 1855. The present structure was built in 1861. The church is an outstanding example of fieldstone construction featuring an unusual half-octagonal apse, a feature not easily constructed in random fieldstone. A cross made from darker stone is embedded in the front wall. The church was entered into the National Register of Historic Places on June 30, 1983.
