Long Description:
St. Anne Catholic Church founded by Father Charles Chiniquy, who came here in 1852, accompanied by most of his French-Canadian parishioners from nearby Bourbonnais, IL. The current structure was built in 1872 to replace Father Chiniquy's original log church.

The stone structure is of Gothic design and topped with a bell tower. The church survived a fire in 1893.

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.
