“Today a twenty-four foot crucifix, rising above the crossroads which lead into the tiny hamlet of Polonia in Portage County, Wisconsin, marks the site on which stands the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. The scene around this landmark is that which a fertile and prosperous farming country presents - comfortable homes, long stretches of pasture lands and richly cultivated fields of grain. It shows a marvelous change from the day in 1864, when an immigrant population had settled here.” -Malcolm Rosholt Online Archives, Portage County Historical Society
