      Cross stands as marker to the past in Nahma

      A new new cross stands tall in Nahma Township, off of Indian Point Road.

      The cross is in remembrance of a native Catholic church which used to be there. The idea of putting building a cross was a collaborative effort between the Nahma Historical Society, St. Andrews Catholic Church and Soo Tribe of Chippewa Indians.

      It was built by the apprenticeship class of the Iron Workers Local A. Member Lucas Bradshaw says this is no small feat. "It's a traditional cross. It stands 20ft tall. It's made out of 8 inch tube steel. It expands at the base of the cross about 12 ft. It's pretty impressive.'

      Three local contractors also donated materials, a crane, and trailer to help erect it.
