St. Joseph's Catholic Church
Standing as a sentinel at the end of Main Street, St. Joseph's Catholic Church is not only the physical centerpiece of the community, but is also the heart and soul of the community as well. Due to the hard times, the building was completed in stages. Though the towers were completed by December of 1913, it was not plastered until 1917 in preparation for the First Mass to be celebrated in the new church.
