Sorrowful Mother Shrine, Bellevue

Illustration of the chapel at Sorrowful Mother Shrine, which burned in 1912. The current chapel is built on its foundation. (From Fr. Edmund Binsfeld's 1950 history of the shrine.)

Trains from Cleveland brought many pilgrims to both Sorrowful Mother Shrine and Our Lady of Consolation in Carey in the early 1900s. (Sorrowful Mother Shrine's location has been known as Frank, Thompson, and Marywood -- Bellevue is the mailing address.)
