Long Description:
Saint Hippolyte Church and Cemetery is located on Route 27 in Frenchtown, Pennsylvania. The parish was founded by French immigrants to Crawford County in 1834. Construction on the present church building, built to replace an older church building, was begun in 1886. The church was consecrated by Bishop Tobias Mullen on June 10, 1888.

The cemetery dates back to year 1840, which is the date of the earliest grave there, according to a list available on the parish's website. Along the road is a metal arch with the name "St. Hippolyte Cemetery" on it. There is also a tall crucifix near this entrance. A plaque at the base of the crucifix notes that the cemetery received a preservation award in 2009 from the Crawford County Historical Society.
