Historic Our Lady of the Lakes Church:
More than a Century of Catholicism in the Rangeley Region

Our Lady of the Lakes Church was built in 1908, primarily through the efforts of Cornelia “Fly Rod” Crosby. A convert to Catholicism, she was authorized by letter from Bishop O’Connell (dated July 23, 1906) to accept donations “with a view to a chapel in the Rangeley Region.” Collecting funds from residents and tourists, and using land given to her by the railroad company, she spearheaded the construction of the church. The first Mass was celebrated in the church on August 30, 1908, by Father Ambrose H. Barry. On September 30, 1908, Bishop Walsh visited the newly built chapel. He would later bless the church on August 15, 1911.
