St. Francis Catholic Church

501 Ward Street

St. Francis Catholic Church is a large building, spartan in its accouterments. Next to the main building stand a convent and rectory. The congregation is primarily Italian Catholic, presided over by Father Dario Allighiero.

The church is burned down under suspicious circumstances (although the Kingsport fire department attributes the blaze to “faulty electric”) on Friday June 18, 1926. Father Allighiero is horribly burned attempting to save his parishioners from the blaze, and is taken to Congressional Hospital. All told, five people are killed and two injured in the fire.
