[Text derived from the church web page cited below. Photographs original]

The windows and statuary were fashioned by Mayer & Company of Bavaria.

On Sunday morning, July 24, 1870, the former Crispin Hall on Cabot Street, which had been purchased by the Archdiocese of Boston for the Catholics of Beverly, was dedicated as a mission parish of Immaculate Conception Church in Salem and dedicated to the Greater Glory of God under the Patronage of Saint Mary Star of the Sea. A little over a year later, on October 16, 1871, the church became an independent parish. on August 15, 1896, the church was destroyed by fire.
