Completed in 1918, Saint John The Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church was founded to serve Slovak, Rusin, Hungarian and Croatian immigrants to rural Fayette County.
The church is named in honor of John The Baptist, a mission preacher and a major religious figure who led a movement of Baptism at the Jordan River in ancient times. According to the Bible, John baptizes Jesus and was later beheaded. John is regarded as a prophet in Christianity, Islam the Bahá'í Faith and Mandaeism.
Among the church's most interesting and iconic elements is a beautiful golden onion dome topped by a cross.
The church's social hall is often used for community events and fundraisers.
