|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
St. Patrick Church of Erin was build in 1855 by Irish immigrants. It is one of few churches in Wisconsin built in the shape of a cross, which adds to its historical significance. The original interior of St. Patrick Church has been preserved for over 150 years. Beautiful statutes of St. Patrick and of the Blessed Mother were donated in 1883 and the 1,000-lb. bell and stained glass windows were added in 1904.
The St. Patrick grounds includes the church, two cemeteries, Old St. Patrick Cemetery established in 1850 and an additional cemetery site added in 1959, and a rectory.
Even though the parish was officially closed in 1999, special Masses are still held in this beautiful historic Church. St. Patrick Church was merged with St. Kilian Parish of Hartford and given "chapel" status in June of 1999.
