Notes
Survey number HABS MI-417
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Significance: Designed in 1900 by the firm of Charlton, Gilbert and Demar, who maintained offices in Hancock, Sault Ste. Marie, and Marquette, Michigan, and in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this church was built by the French Canadian Roman Catholics in the Calumet area. This red sandstone (from local quarries at Jacobsville) structure incorporates a very handsome bell tower, and some vaguely late French gothic detail, in an overall American Church Gothic style. The building is most effective in its fine stonework, the imposing yet inviting entrance, and the tower. The tower provides a fine landmark for the entrance to the village's principle business street. It also serves to give focus to the street as well as provides a distinctive reference point for the village's skyline. The fact of the church's existence bespeaks the large number of Canadian French drawn to the area by the great timber needs of the local mining companies.
