Description 

The Manitowoc Historical Society reports that the parishioners of Fr. Oshwald built this church with great effort. There was only one team of oxen and most of the labor was done by the settlers. The church was built with fieldstone. In 1864, Mass was said. The cornerstone was laid in 1868 and a bishop from Milwaukee dedicated the new church.
