St Anne's church was the first building constructed in Fort Pontchartrain du Détroit, which later developed into the city of Detroit. They began construction of a church on 26 July 1701, the feast day of Saint Anne, mother of Our Lady. This church was destroyed in 1703, and subsequent churches have been rebuilt on the site. The current church dates to 1886-1887.
