St. Boniface

One of my favorite chapels in Arkansas is the St. Boniface Catholic Church in Bigelow, Arkansas. It was built in 1906 by a predominantly German community that settled in the area around 1880. The original St. Boniface Church was built in 1901 but was destroyed in January 1906. The only thing that was saved from the original building is the high alter (imported from Germany) that can still be seen today.
