The cornerstone for the massive limestone church was laid in 1926 and it was completed in 1928. St. Francis was designed by George Dietel, one of the architects who designed our incredible Art Deco city hall. Dietel got some input on the design from Murphy & Olmsted architects in Washington, D.C. Although the school was demolished years ago, the former parish house is still present to the rear of the church (separate owner) It has been operated as successful rooming house and is also rich with details throughout.

The nine-foot ceilings in the basement provide the opportunity to build a few studio apartments and lease the space upstairs to a larger tenant(s). The large space would be ideal for a business looking for an open floor plan or traditional reuses options like music venue, performance space, etc.

Other Pertinent Facts Architect George Dietel also designed City Hall. Its location and contributing status in the Hamlin Park Historic District enables the owner to utilize the 20% or 40% historic tax credit program. The 20% path would assume homeownership only, but the 40% program requires the church to be an income producing property, i.e. multiple residential units, commercial space, or a restaurant for example. The nomination was prepared by Preservation Studios and recently listed on the State Register. It is currently at National Park Service for their review and listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
