Former Immaculate Conception/St. Henry’s Roman Catholic Church, Revisited

I realized the last time I came by the former Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church a decade ago, it was a cloudy day, and when I drove by on a recent Saturday, the morning sun was shining on the front faade, making it look wonderful.

In fact, it is probably one of the more beautiful churches in St. Louis.

Almost certainly though, there was a tall spire planned for the southern tower on the east front of the church, and you can see in these reader-submitted photos where the masons are laying the last stones placed on the base of what would have been the tower.

    Where in St. Louis is this located?

      Lafayette Avenue and Longfellow Place–yes, there’s a couple hundred feet of that famous street north of I-44.
