NJ - Jersey City: St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church

St. Joseph's parish was organized in 1856 to serve the Irish laborers working on the Erie Railroad tunnel in the immediate area. This large stone church was erected in 1872-1873, and was designed by Brooklyn architect Patrick Keeley who designed several other Catholic churches in the city. It was intended to be the leading Catholic church in the city, and sits within sight of City Hall on Baldwin Avenue between Magnolia and Pavonia.
