Lourdes Grotto Replica

The grotto is a replica of the grotto at Lourdes, France. There are also other grottoes on the grounds of the Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church.

[Patsy Lewis, 03/06/2020]

The replica was completed in 1925 under the direction of the Rev. Paul D. Kasper. He thought that the rock wall that surrounded his church was ugly, so he had it torn down and remade into the grotto. It's 20 feet high and 43 feet wide.
