Long Description:

Old Mission of the Sacred Heart

Opened for services in 1853, this is the oldest building in Idaho.

Black-robed Jesuits founded the mission on the St. Joe River in 1842, but moved here in 18455 and raised this imposing building in a complete wilderness.  Dwellings and outbuildings are now gone, and the mission moved to Desmet in 1877, but the Mass is still celebrated here every year. ~ text of marker
