Ste. Anne de Détroit is the second oldest continuously operating Roman Catholic parish in the United States, established when the area was part of the French colony. The original site was just west of what is now Jefferson and Griswold streets. The 8th and present church is now at 1000 Ste. Anne Street (formerly 19th Street) at Howard, near the Ambassador Bridge. Its cornerstone was laid in 1886. The church contains many relics from the 1818 stone church which stood on Bates Street. Among its treasures are: the main altar, hand carved communion rail, "Beaubien Bell", and the oldest stained glass in Detroit. Father Gabriel Richard, pastor from 1802-1832 as well as Congressman and co-founder of University of Michigan, is buried in a marble tomb in a chapel that bears his name.
