1. St. Catherine Catholic Church Marker
Inscription.  St. Catherine Church was built during the 1860’s probably in 1865. Before the church was built, priests came from Stockton to say Mass for the people of Hornitos. Priests from Sonora and Mariposa came for Mass after the church was built. In the 1930’s the church was repaired, adding a rock foundation and rock buttresses to make the church firm and solid again.
 
Erected by Native Daughters of the Golden West, Mariposa Parlor No. 63.
