St. Mary's Catholic Church is High Hill's main attraction.
As one of Fayette County's Painted Churches, it has some of the best examples of faux-finish woodwork and stained-glass.

The grayish blue stone capping the buttresses and accenting the brick was quarried from the nearby town of Muldoon.

Readers' Comment:
... I am also very familiar with St. Maryís in High Hill as I have attending mass there frequently as well. The rectory is on one side of the church and the parish hall is on the other side. The cemetery at St. Maryís is directly behind the church. ... - Regards, Mike Osina, January 04, 2005
