St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church
Newark, Essex County
St. Joseph's now houses a collection of restaurants and professional
offices, but it is listed on the National Register. It was organized
in 1859, erected in 1878, and held its last Mass in 1980, when the parish
had dropped to about 30 members. Jeremiah O'Rourke was the architect.
