Adelaide, SA - St Patrick's Catholic (30048)
Year Built: 1912
History and Architecture:
After the original church, that was located in West Terrace became too small it was decided to build a new one in Grote St. The Foundation stone was laid in November 1912 and the building was completed in 1914.
Constructed of stone and brick, St Patrick's is Classical-neo Baroque in style, based on a Brunelleschi composition. Architecturally important because it is an early design of W H Bagot, an important South Australian architect noted for his attention to architectural history and accuracy of detail.
The organ at St. Patrick's, built by William Dodd in 1900, originally resided at the Hindmarsh Square Congregational Church, but when that church closed they purchased it for St. Patrick's.
