• This photograph shows an earlier building, of wood frame construction, used by St. Joseph's catholic church on Oak Street in Calumet. The church was built for the Slovenian community and was served by Slovenian priests. Calumet was one of the first settlements in the United States for Slovene immigrants. Slovenes later financed construction of a larger, more impressive St. Joseph church, constructed from Jacobsville sandstone. That later building was renamed St. Paul the Apostle in 1963.
