St. Joseph's Church was an historic Roman Catholic church at Howard Street and East Columbus Avenue in Springfield, Massachusetts. Built in 1873-77, it was a brick Romanesque Revival structure with brownstone trim, and was a fine local example of the style. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[2] In March 2008, the church was demolished by the Colvest Group, which had bought it from the Diocese of Springfield in Massachusetts.[3]
