St. Joseph Church

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this magnificent 1880 Romanesque, old world-style church was built by the early parishioners and showcases priceless German stained-glass windows. Other features include Austrian-designed and imported mosaics with 50 million stones, pewter and marble statues, altars made of Italian marble, and a communion railing of onyx and brass. The tower, whose design was taken from that of the tower that houses Big Ben in London, stands at 235 feet tall, while the height from the floor to the apex of the groined naves totals 90 feet. Today the church is home to nearly 5,000 parishioners, who exemplify great pride in their past.
