Jackson Street at the Turn of the Century

This is one of my favorite old photos of Monroe!  What you are looking at, is a shot down Jackson street.  On the left you can see the Jewish Temple with the ten commandment tablets at the top.  the white building is St. Hyacinth Catholic School, with St. Mathew Church sitting next to it.  Notice it doesn’t have a steeple.  Down the way is the ME Church.  Jackson is unpaved and the trolley tracks run down the center.  Such a fascinating photo!
