Around St. Engelbert’s, Penrose

The neighborhood around St. Engelbert’s is mostly from the early Twentieth Century, but some older houses are scattered throughout.

These businesses above probably served parishioners coming out of Mass, or school children at the nearby school.

But then there are these older houses, such as the Second Empire duplex below.

But most houses and apartments date from the same time as the church nearby. It must have been growing rapidly.


Like elsewhere in the city, this apartment building, the Car-Rich, takes its name from its intersection, Carter and Richmond.
