Heritage Center -St. Annes: Christmas Tree Ornament
Heritage Center - St. Anne's Church Tree Ornament
St. Anne’s church was built on the 100 block of downtown Calumet in 1900 and served the French-Canadian Catholic population. The church was deconsecrated in 1966, and the building was allowed to deteriorate until 1994 when it was purchased by Calumet Township for the purpose of creating a museum to interpret Calumet’s special and ethnic history. Today the building is known as the Keweenaw Heritage Center at St Anne’s.
Each ornament sculpture is framed within a circular laurel wreath that measures 2 1/2 inches in diameter. The entire ornament measures 31/2 x 31/2 inches. A metal hook is attached to the top through which a ribbon is threaded. The ornament includes a stand that is suitable for display. It is eloquently packaged in a black velvet lined 4 ¼ inch square box. This and subsequent ornaments are “must haves” for those who love the beautiful historic buildings of downtown Calumet.
