We'll start the day by discovering the historic Cahokia Courthouse. In the days of Lewis and Clark, the courthouse was the site of legal hearings, postal services and governmental activities. Next, the PCBees will visit the 1977 Holy Family Church and Museum, one of the only two French vertical-timber churches in North America. We'll tour the 1810 Jarrot Mansion, the oldest brick home in the state of Illinois. The mansion is listed as a National Landmark and is a rare example of Federal architecture.
Enjoy a delicious lunch at the Shrine Restaurant at Our Lady of the Snows - an outdoor shrine with more than 200 acres of land. After lunch, we'll visit Cahokia Mounds. This site was the center of the largest civilization in North America until the late 1700's. Sixty-three mounds remain, including the 100 foot tall Monk's Mound. We'll learn more at the interpretive center and stroll among the mounds. Call Diana at 368-4666 to reserve your seat.
