Immaculate Conception [Roman Catholic] Church
Montclair, Essex County
This is an interesting church, quite unlike any other built in the
nineteenth century in New Jersey. Built in 1892, The style might best
be described as Renaissance Revival. Too classical in its elements to
be Romanesque, too symmetrical for Gothic, the church adapts several
features of Italian Renaissance buildings. William Schickel is listed
as the architect in the church's application for historic status filed
with the state.
