Description 

The Chapel of St. Patrick, Sugar Creek, is the oldest existing Catholic church west of the Allegheny Mountains

The late Father Edward J. Moriarty and the Sugar Creek congregation, with the help of local historians, set out to restore the landmark in 1926. The work was done much like it had been 120 years before with the exception of a scarcity of nails for the roof.

The log church was refurbished twice more, once in 1988 and again in 2005.
