258/365 - St. Ignatius

A church, including modern and old portions.

St. Ignatius Loyola is an old church in Houghton which is quite spectacular inside -- and somewhat modernized outside. The church is a registered historical site, made (mostly) of the bright red Jacobsville sandstone which was so popular during the mining era. The church has been modernized by the addition of a large entryway and additional rooms, which works surprisingly well with the older part.
