St. Jean Baptiste d’Amerique

Statue of St. John the Baptist in Saint Francis Xavier Cemetery on Weaver Street in Winooski, Chittenden County, Vermont, just west of U.S. Route 7. It marks the final resting place of Pierre Villemaire (1844-1904) and Albert Pariseau (1880-1946), and was erected by L’ Union St. Jean Baptiste D’ Amerique, a Franco-American association. Saint Francis Xavier parish was established in 1868 to serve the local French-Canadian population.
