Notes: The St. John the Baptist Catholic Church complex includes the church (1871), the St. John/Sacred Heart Cemetery (c. 1870), the rectory (1897), the St. John School (1955), and a shed (c. 1925).

The St. John/Sacred Heart Cemetery lies south of the church and is unfenced. It exhibits a range of markers dating from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day.

The congregation of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church was established in 1862 by German immigrants, who had begun settling the area in the late 1850s. Parishioners erected a small log church in 1862, just north of the present building. By 1865, the congregation had outgrown the log church. A frame church was constructed and dedicated to St. John the Baptist, and the log structure became the first St. John School. The first rectory was built in 1870, and the current church was erected in 1871. A brick, four-room school replaced the log building in 1877.
