112 years ago, The Church of St. Peter in Mansfield was located on the northwest corner of West 1st Street and S. Mulberry St. Parishioners know this as the Third St. Peter’s Church and for many the building the housed the first St. Peter’s High School. During that era, an annual Religious Guide, Church Calendar, and Directory were published by the parish. It contained a brief history of the parish, information on the sacraments, pew rentals, how to be a good Catholic and a business directory. The book also contains a photo of the Thrid Church’s sanctuary and nave.
We’ve scanned the directory and made a copy of it here for you to enjoy. For history buffs, the are a lot of gems from a bygone era. Many names are still recognizable today … Wappner, Oswalt, Chas. Ritter, Marzetti, and Kline. Many businesses list “Both Phones” in their ads which refer to the two telephone companies at the time: The Bell Phone Company or the Mansfield Phone Company.
Note: To see the full directory, click the expand button in the upper right corner of the doucment window.
We are so blessed by the work of Sister Paula Bingert, OSF for her years of work as our parish archivist to have organized and kept these materials in such good condition.
THE MUSIC MAN
The plot involves con man Harold Hill, who poses as a boys’ band organizer and leader and sells band instruments and uniforms to the naive Iowa townsfolk, promising to train the members of the new band. But Harold is no musician and plans to skip town without giving any music lessons. Prim librarian and piano teacher Marian sees through him, but when Harold helps her younger brother overcome his lisp and social awkwardness, Marian begins to fall in love. As Harold begins to develop feelings for Marian, he faces a difficult decision about skipping town.
