St Elizabeth Hungarian Church held a Fall festival event to celebrate the 130th anniversary of the historic church. The Church was the earliest ethnic parish established for Hungarians in the United States. In 1976, St. Elizabeth's Church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, qualifying both because of its place in the area's history and because of its historically significant architecture.
At the event, items from the Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Museum were on display.
Here are some images from inside the Church.
