Pere Marquette Lodge


Pere Marquette was a French Jesuit explorer who founded the first European settlements in Michigan and explored much of the upper Mississippi. He's a big name in this region.We spent the night at Pere Marquette Lodge, about an hour northwest of our home. It is just across the road from the Illinois river. Children, more than serious adult players, love the giant chess set.

Nice, I love all those windows. I would imagine that the tall chess pieces would be a challenge to plan your strategy.
