1. St. Patrick's Chapel Marker
Inscription.  Built in 1819 by Irish immigrants, who lived along the Susquehanna River, dug the canals, and piloted the canal barges. It is the second oldest Catholic Church in Cecil County. Since Catholics were not allowed, at that time, to build churches in Ireland, this chapel is a testimonial to religious freedom, a right guaranteed in the US by the Bill of Rights.
 
Erected by St. Patrick's Chapel Historical Society.
