Holy Hill stands 1340 feet above sea level and 250 feet above the surrounding country-side. It has been a place of inspiration and worship for many years. In 1857 Roman Goetz and Mathias Werner erected a 15 foot white oak cross on its summit. A log chapel followed in 1863. Since then buildings have been enlarged or replaced as needs arose. In 1906 the care of Holy Hill was entrusted to the Carmelite Fathers and Brothers. Today, Holy Hill, one the better known Catholic Shrines in the United States, attracts over 500,000 visitors annually.
