The next best thing to viewing Calumet from the air, is getting up on a rooftop for a skyline vista. That's just what Dan Brown did recently. And what a scene he captured with the sky a shining pink color, emphasizing the church spires, chimney and even what looks like the Swedetown landmark water towers off in the distance. I had never noticed before, but it looks like there's a chimney next to St. Paul's Church (perhaps part of the rectory), which also has a cross on the top of it. Or is it something other than a chimney?

Dan had another interesting church steeple photo in his gallery album. It looks like he took this one of St. Anne's Church in Calumet, from a rooftop perch also. Quite an interesting shot with the background making it look like the sky is on fire behind the steeple.

I love that doubled steeple church. It should have a historical marker in front of it.

good morning everyone. i believe the tower is the chimney from the morrison school, and the cross is from the church over on portland street. pretty good optical illusion. great pics!!!

Good morning from Hohenwald, Tennessee. The wife and I are down here for the graduation of our two grand-sons. The graduation services were held out-side. We enjoyed a wonderful night, the weather was very nice (80 degrees). We are looking foward to being in the Copper Country the last week in July and Aug, for our family renuion, In Lake Linden. Every one have a safe Memorial Day.

The second photo looks like the kind of steeple where I would picture Quasimodo in the dimly lit shadows pulling on the rope to ring the bell.

I'm not sure it the double steepled church (St. Joseph's i believe) has a historical marker in front or not, but you can take a tour, which I highly recommend. The fresco over the altar alone is worth checking out.
