St. Mary of The Angels Beatuiful 19th Century Chicago North Side Church
Posted by ChiTownView
I was in an alley in Chicago's Buck town area Saturday in search of the garage where the police found the car used in the St. Valentines Day massacre. When I looked up the alley I saw this beautiful church dome. It belonged to the church St. Mary of the Angels was founded in 1899. The church was constructed at a cost of $400,000 and it was opened in 1920. The church was closed and almost demolished in 1981 before an outcry by citizens and historians changed their minds and the church remodeled it for it's 100th anniversary.
