History of Saint Joseph's Parish: Shortly after their arrival from Ireland, the Catholic immigrants petitioned the Archbishop of New York for a priest to minister to them in this far off mission. The faithful were first ministered by priests from Troy and only later from Port Henry and Ticonderoga. In 1847 the people constructed a small church in Irishtown, but within a few years tanneries were erected in the Township of Minerva at Olmstedville. Because the majority of the parishioners lived in that community, a larger church was built there in 1871. A resident pastor was assigned shortly thereafter. At various times the priest served as pastor of missions in Wells, Indian Lake, and Schroon Lake. A pastor lived in the parish until 1989 when the priest at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Schroon Lake was given charge of the parish. Since that time the parish house in Olmstedville has been a resident first for a retired priest and later retired religious sisters.
