Bark Chapel on Mackinac Island
This bark chapel is an example of the ones built by Jesuit missionaries back in the 1600's on Mackinac Island. It stands in Marquette Park, named after Père Jacques Marquette, a Jesuit priest who worked with the American Indians in the area. Tourists poke in and out of this simple structure all day long. Behind it looms Fort Mackinac.
