St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church
233 E. Scott Street
Gothic Revival-style pointed arch doors and windows coupled with Greek Revival-style corner pilasters and returned eaves are evidence of the steady growth and evolving architectural heritage of St. Mary's church. Originally built in 1866, the frame construction clapboard-sided church was first enlarged between 1913 and 1918, when the beautiful stained glass windows were installed, and once again in 1935 when the building was moved onto a new full basement story. The most recent addition occurred in 1989, when the sensitively designed St. Mary Center was constructed next to the original church at a cost of $500,000.
St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church and marker are located on westbound East Scott Street, at its intersection with northbound Madison Avenue, at 233 East Scott Street, Omro, Wisconsin 54963.
