Here's another classic Grand Forks postcard. St. Mary's Catholic Church still stands at 216 Belmont Road just south of downtown. I really like this postcard. Notice the fact that, in the old picture, there are very few large trees around the church - this part of town now has so many large trees lining the streets. The park setting across the street from St. Mary's still exists today and is the home of the Grand Army of the Republic statue. I would like to have provided some historic background on the church, but I've been having a tough time finding much out. Does anyone know when St. Mary's was constructed? When was the school building added? Check out this page on Flickr for some more interesting St. Mary's photos from the present day.
