The Jarrot mansion, in Cahokia, Illinois, which was constructed in 1807-1810. This is located next to Holy Family Church, founded in 1699.


  1. As much as your pictures are about Church architecture they are about the history of the region. When told from the traditional"colonial" perspective we were led to believe that Illinois and West of the Mississippi was much younger than the history of the 13 colonies....but in fact the history is much older and richer when told from the French and Catholic Church perspective!

  2. Learning more about history is one of the great pleasures in reading.

  3. Hello Mark

    I like history too.

    Shall the Pope move the Vatican to St Louis as Constantin moved his capital to Byzantium.
