1. Immaculate Conception Church - Chenal Cemetery Marker
Inscription. This monument stands near the site of the altar portion of the original Immaculate Conception church structure. The original structure was built in 1859 and was enlarged three times to its final dimension of 35 ft. wide X 100 ft. deep. Immaculate Conception Parish was formed from a Mission Parish of St. Francis Church Parish located on the Mississippi River about 8 miles upstream from its intersection with Bayou Chenal. All church services were held at this location until 1927 when the current Church was constructed at Lakeland under the Reverend Savare. The Chenal church building remained at this site and its use was primarily relegated to funeral services for parishioners buried at the Chenal Cemetery. Reverend Neubig had the church removed from this site in 1953 because of its deteriorated condition.
