Place of Worship
Our Lady of Victory Basilica
Founded by Fr. Nelson Baker who is currently going through the canonization process for sainthood.
Witness one of America's great Basilica's...this treasured house of worship was built by Father Nelson Baker during some of the most trying times in our nation's history...a wonderful structure...
National Shrine for Roman Catholic church. Built by Father Nelson Baker in 1939, this structure is designed after the Vatican with many different typoes of marble. See www.ourladyofvictory.org
The Catholic greatest Basilica in lackawanna, where father Baker was laid to rest.
Inside and out this is an incredible experience; a MUST see! African mahogany pews, Italian marble spires, Copper angels, and so much more; just breathtaking. Museum in lower level offers insight into the history of the structure and the life of Father Baker. Amazing!
“Major stores like Sears, JCPenney, Best Buy, Payless Shoes, Ulta beauty, Spencers and many more. Savers Thrift store is also in the mall area as is the Dollar Tree, Pier 1 Imports, and restaurants like Friday's, Ichiban Japanese, and the Olive Garden. Lots of great shopping and general area. Wegmans grocery store is across the street and is one of the very best places for organic and fresh foods!”
“If you are in the mood for some homemade cheese and pasta, check this place out! It is a little hidden gem in the middle of a neighborhood. On popular nights a reservation is needed. ”
“ One of our favorites! Award winning "extra pit" BBQ chicken wings are simply heaven. Pickup and delivery only, unless you want to eat outside.”
