When the Loretto Chapel (Santa Fe, New Mexico) was completed in 1878, there was no way to access the choir loft twenty-two feet above. The Sisters of Loretto prayed to St. Joseph, patron saint of carpenters.
On the last day of their novena, a mystery man appeared with tools, and built a spiral staircase for them. He built it, then left town under cover of darkness, without receiving any payment or thanks. No information about this man exists to this day.
Architects and engineers have marveled at this amazing staircase. None can understand how this staircase can balance without any central support. The wood used does not exist anywhere near Santa Fe.
An amazing staircase!
