Inscription. St. Mary's Mission was founded in the 1870s. On July 30, 1886, Bishop Alexander C. Garrett laid the cornerstone for the first church building, which was destroyed by a tornado in 1894. This building was completed in 1911, and St. Mary's became a parish in 1914. Featuring both Gothic revival and Prairie School style influences, the structure is of brick construction with cast stone detail, a central entry porch, and a tower with battlements offset at the rear.
