1. St. Elizabeth Settlement & Day Nursery Marker
Inscription.  Louis Mette, a wine-tobacco-liquor wholesaler, was a parishioner of Sts. Peter and Paul Church. He built this foursquare style home with Romanesque accents. Mette passed the property to the parish to provide support to women and children. The two halls, Petra (for dining) and Kenzel (for lodging), were complimented by a soup kitchen located in the house to the north. The Sisters of Notre Dame operated the facility from 1915 until 1987. The long, limestone wall, in the Victorian style, was also built by Mr. Mette.
