Inscription. The first rural Roman Catholic church in New York State, known as the "Church in the Woods," dedicated to St. Ambrose, was established here in 1829 at Read's Corners, where Nicholas Read was an 1823 pioneer. Mt. Read bears his name. Devout Irish settlers led by Felix McGuire constructed the first church, a wooden structure. A new brick building was dedicated in 1860. (Present church erected in 1966.) The 1860 structure became a library in 1969.
