The former St Joseph's Catholic Church, Nelligen property is now privately owned. The original St Joseph's Catholic Church building was a wooden structure built in 1872. With a growing congregation it was decided to build a larger brick building. This was officilally opened in 1896. The local Egan, McCauley Roughley and Byrne families dug and fired the bricks for the building from the old Nelligen Race Course. The last Mass in the church building was celebrated in Apri 1976. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 18/3/2019.
