Michael's Roman Catholic Church
Paterson, Passaic County
St. Michael's is listed on the national register of Historic Places.
The congregation was organized before 1849 and the church was built,
I suspect in the early years of the 20th century instead of prior to
1900. The architect was Jpseph Bellomo, and the style might be termed
a kind of Spanish Renaissance.
