St. Bonaventure's Church/Hall
Photo of the Fitzpatricks in front of the original St. Bonaventure's Church, after it was moved and converted into the church hall. Like many of the church basements or halls at the time it was also used to store caskets. The writing reads as follows: It took a brave lad to enter this particular area. As time went on, bravery was measured on your ability to lie in a casket for a certain amount of time. In deed this became a most popular place of play for the local kids.
