History Edit

The Church of the Assumption was built in 1858 as St. Mary's Catholic Church [4] in Cliff.[3] In 1899, the church was dismantled and reconstructed in its present location in Phoenix;[3] the name was changed to the Church of the Assumption.[4] Masses were held in the church until 1957. In 1985, the church was purchased by the Keweenaw County Historical Society, which undertook an extensive restoration process.[3] As of 2009, the church (although deconsecrated) is still used for weddings and memorial services.[4]
