Chambersburg was developing rapidly by the first decade of the 20th century as more and more immigrants came to America. Above is the story of the Immaculate Conception School which was dedicated without the usual fanfare.Below is an engraving from my collection showing the church which I believe is an architect's rendering of the edifice. Note the twin spires which were not included in the final construction. I have found no news articles that Immaculate was the victim of heavy storms as was true in so many other churches in the area; therefore I speculate that the architect drawing included twin spires even as the original architect drawing of St. Anthony;s church also had spires that were not included in the construction.
