Also see . . . St. David Catholic Church (Wikipedia). Built in 1911, it is an architecturally distinctive blend of Baroque and Italian Renaissance architecture. The congregation was the first separate Roman Catholic congregation established in Madawaska, the result of many years' struggle, after the international border divided the French Catholic community here in 1842.
