St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi - a Catholic basilica south of Taos, New Mexico. Missionaries founded the church in 1610 - 10 years before the pilgrims established themselves at Plymouth Rock. The oldest church in the US is in Santa Fe, New Mexico, right next to the oldest house in the US.
