Renovating a 120-year-old church using modern technology
The 120-year-old Gothic-style Roman Catholic Church was constructed in 1895 by a group of Irish immigrants to accommodate the city's booming Irish Catholic population. To pay tribute to the parish's Irish heritage, they selected green serpentine for its exterior as part of the design. That decision would become an issue more than 100 years later when the existing serpentine had deteriorated to such an extent that safety had become a concern. Learn more about how the church worked with Coldspring to solve this problem.
