The St. Falconieri Catholic Church was built in 1883 of brick fired at Red Cloud. It served Red Cloud’s Catholic congregation until 1906 when it was sold and converted into a private residence. Here, Annie Pavelka, the Antonia of Cather’s well-loved novel My Antonia, was married, and here her first child was baptized. Restored and donated by the Willa Cather Pioneer Memorial and Educational Foundation.
