Long Description:
ST. ANNE'S CHURCH (Roman Catholic), one block east of the highway, was built in 1872 to replace Father Chiniquy's log church, and was restored after a fire in 1893. A stone structure of Gothic design, topped with a bell tower, the church contains a shrine to St. Anne, established in 1888 to provide parishioners with a counterpart of the shrine at Beaupré, Canada. The shrine is now known throughout the Middle West and several miraculous cures have been reported. St. Anne's Day, July 26th, brings hundreds of visitors to venerate the relic of la bonne Sainte Anne.
