The first church on this site was built in 1727, but was destroyed by fire in 1788. The current church was completed in 1794 but was heavily remodeled in the 1800s. St. Anthony?s Garden was created in 1831, and it's white marble obelisk was set over the buried site of 19 French sailors who perished of yellow fever in Mexican waters.
