Photo: Scottsdale Old Adobe Mission Interior

The interior of the Old Adobe Mission is simple, as one would expect of a church built by volunteer Mexican laborers who were not construction workers by trade.  A local businessman, Robert Evans, who owned the Jokake Inn, helped the Mexican immigrants with their church project.

Evans owned a construction company and he designed the building and loaned foremen to supervise the construction after their work hours.  The priest for the parish obtained a gift of $1,000 from the Extension Society of Chicago to pay for the roof, which is made of heavy timbers that are connected to buttresses on the outside to support their weight.

The Extension Society was given the naming rights in exchange for their donation, and at their request the official name of the Mission is Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church.

Robert Evans' Jokake Inn is now on the grounds of the Phoenician Resort and I have shown photos of it in the past, as reflected by the index label in the right margin.   It was also featured in the movie Raising Arizona, as the hosue of the furniture dealer from which Nicolas Cage's character kidnapped the baby.

This week we are showing photos of the elegant villas and gardens of the Borromean Islands in Lake Maggiore, Italy on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

What a gorgeous place! Stripped of all unnecessary stuff. A real church. said...

The parishioners did not need fancy decor to impress the parish, as they had built the church themselves. That accomplishment was monumental enough.
