St. Joan of Arc Chapel
When this narrow, 15th century French chapel (approx. 550 N. 15th St.), which can fit only five chairs across, was reassembled on Marquette University’s campus in 1966, it instantly won the title of the city’s oldest building. Prior to arriving here, it was owned (and renamed) by a railroad heiress and Joan of Arc admirer, Gertrude Hill Gavin, who placed a stone behind the altar she claimed the French leader had kissed before riding into battle against the British. The clammy stone is still there, whether St. Joan nuzzled it or not.
