1888: GENESIS OF IMMACULATE CONCEPTION CHURCH

This little vignette took some PhotoShop time to bring together into one legible graphic. It tells of the beginnings of Trenton's landmark Chambersburg church on Chestnut Street. The 1901 engraving is from a clipping in my collection. Note that the article from the Daily True American gave the location of the new church as "Chambersbury." The story of the beginnings of the church make for fascinating reading as seen through the news accounts of the year 1888.
