St. Mary’s

St. Mary's

Build in 1904, St. Mary’s is located on the site of what was once the Chinook village of  Qiqayaqilxam, or Middle Village, in McGowan (which is so small, I didn’t even know it had a name until just now).

    Love this building…looks like it’s still in use or it is being kept in great condition. I’d also guess it’s an Episcopal church. I did click on the picture. Those must be native longboats of some such in the yard. Fascinating stuff and a beautiful shot!

    I’ve always been fascinated by the look of this place. Thanks for the history. Very nice photos. I love the incongruity of the canoes.

  4. Thanks, all! Lowell, the church is still in use, but since it has no lights, heat, or water, it’s only used in the summer. They use kerosene lanterns to light it which actually sounds pretty cool.
