St. Mary’s Chapel

This sacred space was designed and built by Louis Chauvin II, a local sugar mak­er, architect, and Civil War veteran in 1875. It was constructed from top to bottom in local cypress highlighting the Goth­ic Revival style. Additions of the tran­septs and sacristy were added in 1900. The frame structure suffers from ne­glect and incoming water damage. Community members are working to establish a new non-profit to establish renovation plans and fundraisers.
