St. Genevieve's Church

The first St. Genevieve's Church was built in 1859. In 1886, the church's adobe structure was replaced by a brick cathedral, which was fronted by two 44-foot bell towers.

In 1967, this structure was demolished and a new church built at a new location -- a huge historical loss.

In 1998, a monument to the old cathedral was constructed at the church's original location.

Here's a drawing of the old church from the monument's plaque:
