Gabriel Roman Catholic Church
is a modest-sized red brick church (30’ x 50’),
across the road from the Old Brick Reformed Church. Although it
sat 250 people, the congregation outgrew it and has since built a
larger church a mile or so away, but this is still used on occasion.
Although the flavor is definitely Gothic, there is no authentic
Gothic element about it and so one should probably regard it as a
well-designed vernacular building that draws on the Gothic idiom.
The elaborate front door is contemporary but in other respects the
building does not appear to have been altered significantly.
