History of St Patrick Catholic Parish

Exploration of this area of the United States, after the Louisiana Purchase in 1801, ushered in a Catholic presence along the Platte River. County records show that the first land claims in Dodge County were filed in April, 1856, by the brothers, John and Arthur Bloomer, two Catholic men who set the stage for the practice of the Catholic faith in this area. There is evidence that, as people settled in this area, that by 1860, there was an active Catholic community in what is now Fremont, Nebraska.
