St. Anne's, along with the other steeples and bell towers that dot the skyline of Calumet, provides insight into the community's ethnic diversity. The architectural firm of Charlton, Gilbert and Demar from Marquette designed the Gothic Revival style church for a growing French-Canadian population. Austrians, Italians, Slovenians, Croatians and the Polish also had their own Catholic Churches in Calumet. Prendergast and Clarkson Company, of Chicago, built the church out of local Jacobsville sandstone.

The former St. Anne's Church is now home to the Keweenaw Heritage Center. The center works to preserve and interpret the area's history and heritage through exhibits and educational programs.

The Nordberg Steam Hoist, the largest steam hoist in the world, once lowered miners 9,260 feet down into the shafts of the Quincy Mine.

To reach 9,260 feet down into the shafts of the Quincy copper mine, the world's largest steam-driven hoist was built in 1918. The Nordberg Steam Hoist and its reinforced concrete building, with brick veneer and Italian-tiled walls, cost over $370,000 but was used for only eleven years.
