Catholic Church

1874. 1908, moved. Mineral St.

The church was moved from Belmont, after that town's virtual abandonment in the early twentieth century, to a hilltop in Manhattan. The simplicity of the building and its lone position add to the picturesqueness of Manhattan's almost ghostly state. The church is in good condition, retaining its drop siding, multipane lancet windows, pointed-arched entry, and small cupola topped with a large cross. The tongue-and-groove floors and interior wainscot remain, though the original canvas wall covering has been removed.
