Historical Note

 

 

St. Joseph's Parish was established in February, 1844.  The present structure of Saint Joseph's Church was dedicated in 1892, twenty-one years after the beginning of construction.  Although known to many as the "Italian Church," it in fact served a predominantly Irish parish for a great number of years.
