Around the corner from the oldest house is The Loretto Chapel, another quick thing to check out. As legend has it, the Loretto church needed a new staircase when it just so happened a traveling carpenter came to town. He built the staircase, which goes against all the rules of engineering and stands miraculously without any support from a center post. No one knows how it was done or the identity of the mysterious carpenter who refused payment and disappeared on the horizon after its completion, never to be heard from again (cue the angelic music and harp chords...). Go to the church and check it out. Takes a couple of minutes and, for its uniqueness, merits a DO NOT MISS.
