The log chapel was originally built by Rev. Stephen Badin as a mission to the Potawatomi Indians in what would become northern Indiana. It was given in 1842 to Fr. Edward Sorin, and it became the original nucleus of the University of Notre Dame. The original was destroyed in 1856 by a fire, and an identical replica was built in the same spot in 1906.
In 1973 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places
