St. Stanislaus Roman Catholic Church
Newark, Essex County
St. Stanislaus is typical of the kinds of Catholic churches built by
middle European immigrants in the last decades of the 19th century.
It is a Gothic style church with a few more pinnacles and niches for
statues than would be standard for a church built 30 years earlier.
St. Stanislaus was organized to serve a largely Polish population in
1888, but the church, started in 1899, was not completed until 1901.
