Genesee Country Village and Museum – #3

This post continues with details and photographs from our visit to the Genesee Country Village and Museum. In Wednesday’s blog post we entered the Historic Village through the Toll House and observed a flag raising ceremony at the Antebellum Village Square. In Thursday’s blog post we strolled along Maple Street and stopped at several businesses along the way.

Please join me today in a stroll along Church Street in the Antebellum Village.

St. Feehan’s Roman Catholic Church, c. 1854 (Chili, NY)

For many years prior to 1854 a group of Catholic families who lived in Chili, NY, traveled to Rochester or Scottsville, several miles away, to attend mass. In 1854 the men of these families began to build a church in their own community. One year later St. Feehan’s Roman Catholic Church was completed.

St. Feehan’s Catholic Church was temporarily used as a recreation facility, and its pews were discarded. The pews installed in St. Feehan’s came from St. Mary’s Church in Scottsville, NY. They are the very same pews upon which the builders of St. Feehan’s sat when they traveled to Scottsville to attend mass before St. Feehan’s was built.

Directly in front of you is Antebellum Village Square, where the War of 1812 Encampment is taking place. At the far left hand corner of the photograph is the Boot & Shoemaker’s Shop.

In my next blog post we will continue our stroll along Church Street.

    Thanks for the tour. Having grown up Catholic I am surprised to say that I have never heard of St. Feehan but then maybe he was declared a saint since my long ago Catholic days.
