The congregation of St. Lawrence was organized in 1846 and is one of the oldest Roman Catholic parishes in Washington County. The first log church, located at the southwest corner of the cemetery, was blessed by Bishop Henni in October, 1846. This building was replaced by a frame church, blessed by Father Beiter in February, 1854, and was located east of the rectory. It was served by the well-known missionary priest, Father Rehrl, in 1855 and 1856. The present structure was erected in 1880-1882 and was consecrated October 4, 1882, by Archbishop Heiss, and is the only consecrated Roman Catholic Church in Washington County.
