St. Patrick's Church

St. Patrick's Church • Order A Print

Another Neo-Gothic Church, the current structure was built in 1895. York County’s oldest Catholic parish dates from 1776, and the first church at this site was built in 1810. While this church is primarily in the Neo-Gothic Style (including pinnacles, deeply recessed doorways, and pointed arches), it also contains elements of Richardonson Romanesque architecture, evidenced by the heavy rough-cut stone and shaped parapets and ribbon of arched windows.
