The Catholic Heritage Center & Museum focuses on the Perry County communities of Apple Creek and Biehle and their deep roots in the Catholic faith. Tour the museum and see local artifacts donated to the museum from local businesses and families who settled this area in the early 1800’s.

The St. Joseph Catholic church sits next door to the museum with its natural spring grotto. The museum houses many religious artifacts from the church through the years.
