In 1888 Joseph Dominick Phillip Oddenino, an Italian immigrant, painted
murals in the trompe-l'oeil style to "trick the eye" into believing that his
frescoes of Gothic arches, Renaissance styled cornices, and embellished
Corinthian columns were three dimensional. This Gothic Revival church was
built in 1879.
