the museum of st. john's catholic church
this simple little church has a surprising interior
It was built in 1877 as a rectangular box. The vestibule was added in the 1920s. In 1952, the parish priest arranged a surprise that will make you smile. In 1968, the church closed and a few years thereafter it was donated to the Table Rock Historical Society.
rededication of the museum, 2013
After many years without the money to properly maintain the church, a bequest from Verlyn Beethe and a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture led to the preservation of this beautiful church. After foundation work and extensive work inside and out, it was rededicated in 2013.
