St. Nicholas Church 1952 Photo

Constructed in 1900, St. Nicholas is the first Croatian church in America, and served new immigrants recruited to work in the area’s steel mills and factories. St. Nicholas closed in 2004, but for decades, the building served as a place for a community to gather for worship, to celebrate its happy times and to mourn in the wake of tragedy. St. Nicholas served as a house of mourning in this photo taken December 5, 1952 as a shocked and saddened community passed through its doors to grieve the six children who died when a gas explosion destroyed their home.
