In 1889, William West Durant established a town on Long Point on Raquette Lake . He built a post office there and a general store, naming the town Durant , NY . A year later, he responded to the needs of the Catholics in the area by donating the land, the materials and the money to build a Catholic Church just down the shore from the general store.

Today the church is near full restoration and is stunning with its woodland surroundings. It is used for a variety of programs and community events over the summer season. Be sure to top by and check us out on your next paddle or ride around Raquette Lake.
