I'm cheating because this isn't a "true" rural church, but Olga has a pretty small population, so it mostly counts. Our Lady of the Sacred Heart was started in 1882 by Father Cyrille St. Pierre. A log church was built and used until 1883. The new church was used until 1917 when it was rebuilt to accomodate a larger congregation. This church burned in 1922 and was quickly replaced. The rectory, which is next to the church, was built in 1936. Our Lady closed in June of 2005.
