The parish is the oldest Orthodox Church in the state of Wisconsin, having celebrated 100 years in 2006.
The church was recently designated as a historic site by the Chippewa County Historical Society. A new plaque that was placed on the church reads: “St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church is the oldest Orthodox church in the state of Wisconsin. Shortly after their arrival from eastern Europe in 1901, the Carpatho-Russian community settled in this area and began holding church services in their homes. They built the church building in 1906 following the Byzantine style of architecture and included a dome with an Orthodox cross placed on top.”
