St Anthony of Padua Chapel
The Belgian settlers built small roadside chapels usually dedicated to a saint in Brown, Door and Kewaunee counties. The chapels were built in honor of something giving a thanksgiving offering or to help aid a sick relative. The building started to pop up along the country roads during the mid-1850s. The old chapels are still used today. Many are still being built. Some of the chapels are open to visit at anytime. Others are locked but tell you how they can be entered.
