Fifty-three years before the Declaration of Independence, five years before New Orleans had a permanent church, immigrants to the German Coast built on the west bank a log chapel to acknowledge their dependence upon God and to express their thanks to Him for leading them to this fertile land. With gratitude we the people of St. Charles Borromeo parish, heirs of the east bank church erected in 1740, and of its successor "The Little Red Church," 1806-1921, memorialize our ancestors during the bicentennial year of our nation.
