Quick Description: Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Dobie. This marker has the most roadside "Historical Marker Ahead" signs of any marker in a remote location that I have ever seen. The parishioners are obviously very proud of their church and village.

Long Description:
The congregation of this church traces its roots back to 1870 when people first held services in their homes in what was originally called Stanfold. This community later became Dobie. Their first Catholic church was built in 1876 but was destroyed by fire in 1895. Services were then held in a temporary structure until the present church was completed in 1904. The name of the church reflects the French ancestry of many early parishioners.
