Sentimental Sunday: Historic Plaques at St. Mary's Church in Sandusky

St. Mary's Catholic Church is located at 429 Central Avenue in Sandusky, Ohio. While it was originally the parish where most Catholics of German descent belonged, when my great grandmother, a native of Hungary, passed away in 1919, her funeral was held at St. Mary's Church. This marker provides a brief history of the church.

The reverse side of the marker tells us details about the church's architect, F.G. Himpler.

Built of limestone, St. Mary's Church has been active in Sandusky for several decades. Click here to see excerpts from the St. Mary's Parish Quarterly from July, 1922.
