This is St. Joseph's Mission. It's a very old church on the Nez Perce Indian Reservation, about 10 miles from Lewiston. Here is a little about the church:

"Father Joseph Cataldo began working among the Nez Perces in 1867 and built this church in 1874. Chief Slickpoo, a Catholic Nez Perce, gave the land. Lewiston friends, some Nez Perces, some Coeur d"Alenes, and even some Chinese miners gave money for the church."

This was on a sign in front of the church. I took pictures of the sign but only this half came up. Not sure what happened to the other side, lol!

Enjoy the pictures! I am sorry that some of the pictures are just a little slanted, I must have been kinda slanted myself, LMAO! Posted by Picasa
