Saint Elizabeth's Church, also known as the Old Stone Church, is a historic church located at 302 East Chicago Boulevard (M-50) in downtown Tecumseh in Lenawee County, Michigan. It was designated as a Michigan Historic Site on May 8, 1986 and later added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 13, 1986.
Saint Elizabeth's Church is a small Gothic Revival church located one block east of the Tecumseh Downtown Historic District and across East Chicago Boulevard from the Dr. Samuel Catlin House. The building housed the first Catholic church built in the Protestant dominated Tecumseh. Amid controversy, the Catholic church was built in 1913. When church membership outgrew the original structure, the congregation moved to a new facility in 1952. The Church of Christ purchased the building in 1954 but vacated by 1972 to a larger facility themselves. From 1976–1982, the building served a commercial function as a stained glass studio. In 1982, the city of Tecumseh purchased and restored the building for the Historical Society of Tecumseh.
