Women’s History Month: Mother Theodore and Terre Haute
Arriving in Terre Haute, Ind., the afternoon of Oct. 21, 1840, Mother Theodore Guerin and her sister-companions spent the night in the city. She writes about Terre Haute:
“Like all American cities it [Terre Haute] is laid out on a large scale; in some places the houses are a gunshot from each other. We passed the night there in a hotel, and the next day heard Mass in a small Catholic church [St. Joseph’s] which has just been built. It is quite good for this country.”
