View of First Street 1900's
Original St Michael Churches
Gothic Church Burns

View looking down First Street in the early 1900’s. St Michael’s gothic style church is the tallest structure, seen top left, near where Sunrise Mountain Sports building is today.

At the far left is the first St Michael church, built in 1872. It served the parish until 1891 when the new gothic style church was built, seen to the right.

The church caught fire in August 1916. Firefighters stood helpless, as their hoses could not reach the towering spire. In minutes, the church was gone.
