Bringing back Frenchtown

Yesterday I attended the groundbreaking for the Frenchtown historic site. It's being built at one of the only parts of Frenchtown still standing: a cemetery marker for the St. Rose of Lima Church.
This photo is of the waiting grader, sitting in the field of bunchgrass that was once a cemetery. In the background, the cemetery's white maker stands tall.
When the development is finished, an overlook and interpretive signs will sit along with that lone monument.
A story about the groundbreaking appears in today's East Oregonian.
