History

The Mt. Carmel Story

In an effort to preserve the old St. Mary Cathedral, a Gaylord landmark, the Mt. Carmel Historical Group was founded. This group purchased the building from the Diocese of Gaylord in 1985 and has been granted tax exempt status as a nonprofit corporation.

The Building is situated in the center of the city of Gaylord and was constructed in 1900-1901, at a total cost of some fifteen thousand dollars. At that time and for years to come, it was the largest building in the area. The bell tower and its ubiquitous clock have withstood years of harsh treatment by the weather and continue to serve as a beacon and landmark for the Alpine Village.

Mt. Carmel Centre is dedicated to preserve the history of the community arts activities; a site for cultural pursuits of various types.
