Sainte Anne Church #1

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 14 December 2016 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Sainte Anne Church, commonly called 'Ste. Anne Church' or 'Ste. Anne's Church', is a Roman Catholic church that serves the parish of Sainte Anne de Michilimackinac in Mackinac Island, Michigan. The Jesuit missionary Claude Dablon inaugurated the rites of the Catholic faith on Mackinac Island in 1670, but the earliest surviving parish records list sacraments performed starting in April 1695. After moving from Fort de Buade to Fort Michilimackinac about 1708 and from Fort Michilimackinac to Mackinac Island in 1781, the parish used a historic log church for decades. It constructed the current church complex starting in 1874 on a site donated by the former fur trader, Magdelaine Laframboise.

Your architecture photos are as good as it gets, without being there in person.
From the photo it also looks like the kids like to use it for its vantage point.

A real beauty! I am reminded of a gorgeous old church in Nova Scotia's Acadian shoreline region that is also a historical gem and of wood construction. Fantastic photo of this jewel.

Excellent detail maintained in the white brightly lit church. THe blue sky might be a bit over-polarized but it provides a drmaatic backdrop. While noticeable, the keyhole distortion is not distracting.
