   Photographic Inventory

St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church
South Amboy, Middlesex County

  

This is a very large and quite a stylish church, located on Augusta Street. It was likely built between 1873 and 1876. It has been variously attributed to Patrick Keely and Jeremiah O'Rourke, but I suspect it was the work of Lawrence J. O'Connor, who designed the Church of the Assumption in Morristown. It was originally called St. Mary's, Star of the Sea.
