Long Description:
Founded by Ukrainian immigrants in 1884, St. Michael's was the first church of the Greek Catholic Rite in America. Present church edifice, of the Byzantine style, was erected in 1983.

This might be the only Byzantine styled Pa.historical marker in the state! Kind of looks like an icon shape.
