1. Ste. Anne's Church Marker
Inscription.  In 1721 a chapel to Ste. Anne was built outside the first Fort de Chartres near the river. In 1731 the villagers of Chartres constructed in this vicinity a church of post-on-sill measuring 50 by 30 feet.

The parish included St. Joseph Chapel at Prairie du Rocher and a chapel called "The Visitation" at St. Phillipe.

After the abandonment of the village of Chartres St. Joseph Chapel became the parish Church.
