Artist's Description

History of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church
Parnell, Grattan Township, Kent County, Michigan

The area that is now known as the Parnell parish has a history that goes back much further than the hundred and fifty years that St. Patrick’s has existed.
For years before the 1840’s, Ottawa Indians traveled back and forth across the present townships of Ada, Grattan, Vergennes, Cannon, and Oakfield. They settled on the banks of the Flat and Grand Rivers and also on the shores of the area’s many lakes and streams. Their trails existed between the modern cities of Grand Rapids, Lowell, and Greenville. These Indian civilizations are remembered today only through the occasional uncovered arrowhead, smoothes stone, or legend. Wabasis Lake in the northern reaches of the modern St. Patrick’s parish takes its name from a great chief of these Indians whose fabled treasures are yet to be found.
