Jordan Catholic Church

A Catholic Church was built in the town site of Jordan, the original town site, on lot 10. The first Mass being said on August 3, 1917.

Since the railroad did not come through Jordan the town died and the Catholic Church closed in 1920. It was moved to Witten and then to Wood where it still stands today.

The Jordan church was served by Father Novak and other missionary priests. Some of the old foundation can still be seen at the Jordan town site.
