Dedicated in 1905, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church sits on a quiet backstreet just a few blocks from the bustle of Manchester Road in Maplewood.

Built in what I would call an Italian Romanesque style, still easily seen through small towns throughout the Italian countryside, the church dominates its street corner.

Mature trees frame the church, reaching high up above the roofline; it actually is difficult to photograph the church because the density of the neighborhood is so intact.

I suspect this building once held the residences of the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette, who ran the church until recently.
