The Catholic Churches of Stearns County

ST. MARY'S -  MELROSE,MN
"Saint Mary's is the largest church in rural Stearns County, built in the Romanesque Revival style with several Gothic features. The church's main facade faces east, with a pair of square 130-foot high corner towers that make the transition at the tops to octagonal belfries supporting onion-shaped domes with Coptic crosses. The church was built with red brick produced in Menominie, Wisconsin, supported on massive dark-gray blocks quarried in the St. Cloud  area."
