Cloquet Landmark Back to Former Glory
Bell Tower Restoration Complete
An iconic feature is back up and running at the Queen of Peace Church.
Restoration is complete and you can hear ringing once again in Cloquet.
Scaffolding covered the city’s landmark while construction work was done.
Concrete had been crumbling off the tower.
Now, a steel cap has been made to go around the base of the pillars.
“When you look up and see the brand new material that has replaced the old crumbling concrete it looks really nice, it turned out good so we’re happy about that,” said Fr. Justin Fish of Queen of Peace Church.
Fr. Fish says it was a big undertaking, but in all he’s glad the tower will be around for at least another 100 years.
“We’re proud of our building, we’re proud of our church, we’re proud that we’re able to take care of it and to let it be something for the community to enjoy,” said Fr. Fish.
The work was paid for by donations and grants.
Queen of Peace Church is located at 102 4th St. Cloquet, MN 55720.
