St. Michael Catholic Church, Buckman, MN

Another large church in a small community, St. Michael's was built in 1902 and has very fine, carved oak altars and large stations. The windows depict the mysteries of the rosary. A Reuter pipe organ resides in the loft.

A few unusual items worth mentioning:

1) the plaster ornamentation on the corbels

2) the statue of St. Michael in the high altar - I've never seen one of Michael holding Satan by a chain.
