Our lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. Planner, builder, and first pastor (aided by Reverend Thadeus Dean and Robert T. Woodruff) was James Van Hommisen. Property was donated by homesteader Marvin Smith. First step in construction was extending Redoubt west from Binkely street to the church property. Father Van Hommisen recruited 5 or 6 experienced stone masons, born in Ireland and unemployed in Anchorage to construct the building.
