Ruins of St. Peter's Mission
In 1908, several buildings of the St. Peter's Mission Church and Cemetery (the boys' school, the priests' residence, the school for Native American girls and several others) in Cascade, Montana burnt to the ground. Ten years later in 1918, the Ursuline convent burnt to the ground. The destruction of the convent caused the abandonment of the mission, which had been founded in 1887. You can visit the ruins on Birch Creek, 10.5 miles west of Cascade, Montana.
