The Daily Mining Gazette invited its readers to step into the past. Readers were asked to identify the Copper Country location shown last week and share a memorable experience of the location. A collection of reader responses accompanies a current photo and confirmation of its location in today’s edition.
Beautiful picture! It is a picture of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and rectory in Rockland. The rectory is gone now and the top of the steeple was replaced after the original one was destroyed in a fire.

St. Mary’s in Rockland. It said Copper Country and I was so happy when the responses said Rockland. A long history of the entire Sebastian Schmaus Family back to the middle of Eighteenth century.
Sure looks familiar! Rockland.
