Web Site Notes

"Saint Mark's was dedicated on Saturday, April 25, 1931. Although a much more magnificent building was envisioned, it was not to be. The building was planned in 1926, pledges made through 1928, and the pouring of cement begun in 1928. However, the 'Great Depression' of 1929 caused a considerable decrease in available funds. The result is, in large measure, what we have today. This 'Holy Box,' as it is affectionately called, represents what could be done with the money which was available. At the time of the dedication, $250,000 was still owed to the St. Louis bankers who financed the construction." Old URL: <> accessed 03/03/2007, deaccessioned 05/04/2015.
