Walk in the history of this landmark in The Dalles. Originally known as St Peters Catholic Church, St Peter's Landmark was built in 1897. It was almost torn down but the community banded together to keep it standing.

Old St. Peter's Landmark, originally known as St. Peter's Catholic Church, was built in 1897, and was dedicated on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1898.

In 1970, the Monsignor of the Church declared that the church should be torn down and the bricks sold. At the time, a new church was being built that would hold more parishioners and would provide easier access for Senior Citizens.
