St. Severin’s Old Log Church: Clearfield County
St. Severin’s Log Church in Clearfield County hails from a time in which settlers were starting to occupy territories further and further west. Clearfield County was occupied on paper when it was established in 1804, but at least through the mid 1850s, the Lenni Lenape and other tribes still stood defense on their land. St. Severin’s Log Church was erected around this same time in 1851 and was used through around 1880.
It is a small and humble church whose parish still lives on to this day. The land surrounding it is still used as a cemetery. It is 1.5 stories tall and was built upon a stone foundation. It has a gable roof and steeple. It is about 45 x 24 Feet in size.
It was built in the old Cooper Settlement within Cooper Township, along what is now Route 53 in Clearfield County and it is a very relaxing place to visit.
If you are in the area, this is well worth taking a few minutes of your day to check out. If you are headed up into the wilds from central PA, it is pretty easy to check out this place. We took Route 53 up from route 80 to Scenic Route 144 up to Hyner View State Park area and then cut over to the PA Grand Canyon. It was a great place to stop and reflect for a little bit.
