In 1910--The modest little frame church which was the original home of worship of St. Anthony's congregation was dedicated on July 5, 1857. The first pastor was Rev. Leopold Pawlowski, who remained with the congregation but a short time. Rev. J. A. Konig succeeded him and remained with the parish until 1860. The school was established in 1865.

In 1895 Rev. Charles J. Hutter took charge of the parish affairs; he built the substantial school and replaced the church by a handsome new structure in 1902. The school is in charge of School Sisters of Notre Dame, whose mother house is in Milwaukee, Wis. Number of pupils in attendance is over 700. Donaldson & Meier were the architects for the church.
