Doors Open Milwaukee – Marquette’s St. Joan of Arc Chapel

Doors Open Milwaukee

“The chapel was originally in the little village of Chasse near the city of Lyon in southeastern France. The chapel’s original name was Chapelle de St. Martin de Sayssuel. During the French Revolution it fell into disrepair and by the time it was rediscovered, shortly after World War I, by Jacques Couelle, a brilliant young French architect, it had become totally dilapidated. Couelle worked with the French government to restore the chapel and negotiate its transfer to the United States.” – Doors Open Milwaukee Website
