In the year 1841

The Reverend Lucien Galtier

erected near this site

the Chapel of Saint Paul

from which this city

derived its name


In 1841 and in the month of October

I caused some logs to be cut, prepared

and put up and soon after a poor church

of logs and fitted so as to remind one

of the Stable of Bethlehem was built.

Now the nucleus of Saint Paul was

formed. This church thus remained

dedicated to Saint Paul and I

expressed the wish to call

the place by no other name.

Extract from a letter written by

Father Lucien Galtier in 1864
