St. Anthony, Waterford

The Waterford community was originally settled by Irish immigrants. In the mid-18th century, priests visiting the area were urged to use Shane's Castle for services. Shane's Castle was a rough cedar log cabin built by three German brothers (Ignatius, Sebastian and Xavier Waas) in the mid-1700's. After the demise of the Castle, a wooden church was built on Church Road, located a short distance to the northeast of the present church building. The present St. Anthony's Church was built in 1929. St. Anthony was named a parish May 23, 1966 with the appointment of Father Pasquale M. DiBuono as pastor.
