The amazing talent of Fr. Ravalli can be seen in the photos below. He handcrafted much of the furniture, including Fr. Superior's desk, as well as many of the objects in the photos, such as his chalkboard/easel.
More examples of his artistic talents are shown in the Mission Chapel. Visit The Book Shop for more history of Fr. Ravalli and his contributions to Historic St. Mary's and the State of Montana.
~ Father Anthony Ravalli, S.J. ~
It was largely due to the mechanical skills of Fr. Ravalli that the first flour mill and saw mill were erected in what is now the State of Montana. Although primitive, both helped to feed the priests and natives and provide lumber for housing.
