The Landmarks Committee is a committee of the Toledo-Maumee Valley Historical Society dedicated to preserving historic structures in the Toledo area. In 1980-1981, the Landmarks Committee worked jointly with the Toledo Camera Club (also known as the Photo Arts Club) to document the architecture of two Catholic churches--St. Anns Roman Catholic Church at 1105 W. Bancroft Street (currently called St. Martin dePorres), and St. Patricks Catholic Church at 130 Avondale. The project was undertaken following the burning of St. Patricks steeple on September 9, 1980, after it was struck by lightning during a thunderstorm. The Landmarks Committee felt it was important to visually document both St. Patricks and St. Anns to ensure a record of both the interiors and exteriors of these two historic churches for the future
