I found the ruins of this shrine off of Saint Anne Shrine Road. I visited and photographed here several years ago. At that time this shrine was in semi ruin and in need of repair though it still was evident of the devotion and workmanship which went into building it. My mother grew up in the area and remembers religious services being held here. The story passed down through local lore says that a "finger bone of Saint Anne" is buried in the altar. The day I visited it appeared that the altar may have been vandalized.
