Inscription. St. Peterís Roman Catholic Church was completed in 1898 in the Gothic Revival style. The steeple rises to a height of 176 feet and is surmounted by a cross and a six-foot tall cock weathervane. Stained glass windows, a tin ceiling cover embossed with abstract floral designs, painted portrait medallions, an altar of Carrara marble, and a pipe organ of rare tigerwood are noteworthy features of the church interior. This landmark was saved from destruction by citizensí action in 1970 and now represents the cultural and artistic community of The Dalles in the late 1800s.
