In celebration of the city of St. Louis's 250th birthday this year (2014), there was a special cake. Times that by 250, that is!
Called 'Cakeway to the West', 250+ cakes have been placed all over the St. Louis area, including the Metro East. Places that have cakes include historical landmarks, parks, museums, popular restaurants, as well as government places. These are just a few examples as the places represented St. Louis in a memorable way.

#82: Church of the Holy Family
Oldest Catholic parish in America that is still continuing to operate. How far back are we talking about, you ask? 1699. The log church, however, was built a century later, in 1799. The building was constructed of black walnut timbers, pretty much like the French Colonial style. Interestingly enough, this place is only one of five still standing that carry on that style. Many different types of services are conducted here. One example is a contemporary Sunday morning service, which features guitar music (unlike the others).
