The celebration is free and open to the public. Donations for the church’s restoration are encouraged.

The Chippewa City Church was built in 1895 by Ojibwe carpenter Frank Wishcop. 120 years later this beautiful piece of history needs attention. Thanks to donations from the Grand Portage Band of Chippewa, St. John’s Catholic Church in Grand Marais, and our members, a new roof is keeping the structure safe and dry. However, there are additional serious structural issues that must be addressed.
