Description[edit]

Convent building

The St. Gabriel's complex consists of the church (1925), rectory (1907-1908), and former convent (1937). The church is a high French Gothic Revival steel frame building clad in pink granite ashlar with Indiana limestone trim. It features twin bell towers with triple entrance portals at the front facade. The rectory is a three-story, wood frame building in the Colonial Revival style. The convent was designed by noted architect Anthony J. DePace (1892–1977), and is a four-story building clad in granite ashlar and limestone. It was converted to affordable apartments and offices in 1998-1999. The church was founded in 1855.[2] It merged with Annunciation Parish. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
