Inscription.  

In 1855, Pioneer Roman Catholic settlers of the Black Swamp erected a 16 x 24 log church where you are now standing reserving the land beside it for their cemetery thus founding St. Stephen's Parish.

Here they assembled to worship God with Farther Francis Wusterholt as their priest.

In 1880 after the log church was destroyed by fire, the present St. Stephen's church was erected in Delaware Bend.
