Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church, in Zell, Missouri, USA - view from distance with pigs

A view of Saint Joseph Church, in Zell, Missouri, which I took on December 17th, 2007.

The cover of the January 2009 issue of the Missouri Historical Review.
Cover Description: Many smaller cities and towns, as well as urban centers, in Missouri became home to German immigrants in the mid- to late nineteenth century, but the new arrivals did not simply strike out on their own; they often followed or were accompanied by family and friends from home. Walter D. Kamphoefner discusses how his research on Missouri’s German heritage led him to the idea of chain migrations to towns like the pictured Zell, Missouri, in “Uprooted or Transplanted? Reflections on Patterns of German Immigration to Missouri,” beginning on page 71. [Mark Abeln, St. Louis, MO]
