Founded in 1881, St. Rose of Lima was the first Irish parish in the Back of the Yards. It closed in 1990. The two photographs show St. Rose of Lima as it looked in 1911. In one picture we can see the church's "curfew tower," while the other shows Father Dennis Hayes and a group of schoolchildren outside the church.
