Steeple Square is the former St. Mary’s Church campus located in Dubuque, Iowa on the block of White and Jackson Streets between 15th and 16th Streets. Currently going through restoration, Steeple Square serves as a collaborative, inclusive center providing opportunities for community support, social life, and cultural growth.
The former church is now the Steeple Square Community Events Center which is available for rental during the restoration. It has a hall, salon and conference center for rent.

The former Jackson Street School is now the Francis Apartments, which consists of permanent-supportive housing for Opening Doors graduates and market-rate apartments. The Marita Theisen Child Care Center is planned for the former rectory.
The campus has already hosted stained-glass window workshops, vocational training, weddings, showers, birthday parties, end-of-life celebrations, community fests, community events, business meetings, art, music and cultural events, and more!
Steeple Square is inspiring futures!
