St. Louis Catholic Church in Washburn, Bayfield Co. Wisconsin. Note that it is constructed from the beautiful Brownstone native to this area. Basswood Island supplied much of the durable Brownstone used in construction of multi-story buildings before 'skyscraper' building technology began, circa 1905. Many "row houses" in the historic Summit Ave district of St. Paul MN, government and commercial buildings throughout Mpls, Chicago, Milwaukee and elsewhere were built from this durable building material.
