St. Lawrence the Martyr Roman Catholic Church

By the end of the 19th century, Hamilton’s need for a Catholic church in the north end resulted in the construction of this Romanesque-style brick-and-cut-stone edifice. Dominated by its imposing four-storey tower, buttresses also divide the front façade into three bays. The main entrance contains a fine rose window. Of note are the Italian marble main altar and pulpit.
