KAUKAUNA — The April 29, 1898 Kaukuana Times noted the placement of the corner stone for the new St. Mary’s church.

The paper reported that the time capsule included a copy of the Kaukauna Times, Kaukauna Sun, the Chicago Herald, Milwaukee Sentinel and several other papers along with a list of the members of the church.


The completed church will cost upwards of $40,000.
