Inscription.  Records indicate that within this proximity the first Catholic Church and Cemetery was built for the small village of Petites Cotes, then under Spanish rule. The church was named Saint Charles Borromeo and dedicated on November 7, 1791 by Lt. Governor Manuel Perez. Its architecture was referred to as the Creole Mississippi Valley style "poteaux en terre," meaning upright timbers. The log church was replaced by a more stable church of stone in 1828.
