Long Description:
Built in 1853, St. Vincent's is an example of Renaissance Architecture of the 15th century in Italy. The church is predominately built in Gothic style with some Roman influence.

An unusual feature is the medieval design plaster masks portraying characters from the "Miracle and Mystery Plays".

Interesting to note that the historic B'Nai Israel Synagogue is next door to St. Vincents.
