Our Lady Of Nativity

On this day, March 19th, 1882, the cornerstone to the Our Lady of  Nativity was laid.  The Nchurch building was built in the Gothic Style of the fifteenth century Renaissance movement in Europe. Much of the credit for the beauty and symmetry of the building belongs to Mr. Edwin Durang, the architect, who brought to his task an expert and thorough knowledge of his craft.

On August 20, 1882 the parish buildings were dedicated by Bishop John F. Shanahan, Bishop of Harrisburg.
