St. Boniface Catholic Church

The St. Boniface congregation was formed in 1853 when there were enough German Catholics to warrant splitting off from the main Lafayette parish. In 1863 the new church bought land for a new building which was completed in 1865. The church tower originally had a flat roof and the spire was added in 1887.

The building is in the Gothic Revival style. The original tower had a large stained glass rose window on the top level which was removed when the spire was added. The front facade has three parts which the tower in front of the two wings.
