  • All Saints Roman Catholic Church (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

The French Romanesque style was the inspiration for the design of this stone church. The plan of the church comes close to being in the form of a Greek cross, with a pair of small round towers built into the juncture of the two sides of the cross toward the front. Everything about the design emphasizes the vertical, including the central dome on a high drum. The dome can be seen from all parts of town.
