St. Bernard, New Washington

I like this, though the top of the tower needs help. Notice the different colored bricks, and the decorative tiles at the top. The door hinges are nice, too.
Does anyone know when it was built? I'd wager a newer brick facing was added to an older building.

I looked in Fr. Mossing's history of the diocese, and the church was built in 1869, stained glass and altars are from the early 1900s, and sometime while Fr. Traunero was pastor (1949-1960), the vestibule was enlarged and the brick veneered.
