St. Joseph, Monroeville

Completely different. I've never seen anything quite like it. Let's start with that odd tower with the even odder finial. Then, the round windows on the first floor. Those abnormally high dormers. It breaks a lot of rules, but it works. Like a strong spice, it's very differentness makes it a significant landmark.

That is odd...

Notice the phantom "arch/window" on the left side and, presumably the right also?

A door, perhaps? It makes me wonder if the front wasn't added later.

No i believe those were windows at one point...because there is still one on the other side. http://s163.photobucket.com/albums/t313/stmarynorwalk/Saint%20Joseph/windows/?action=view¤t=DSCN3480.jpg
