Church of St. Hubertus—Catholic is a historic church on Great Plains Boulevard, and W. 78th Street in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The town itself was first named St. Hubertus before it became Chanhassen. The congregation was established by Father Aloysius Wewer in 1877. The 1887 building was actually the third building used by the congregation. It was built by John Geiser (1812-1902), who also carved the altar, and who built about 30 other churches in his lifetime. The parish built its fourth church building in 1976, then built its present building in 1997.[2]

The 1887 building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
