St. Marguerite’s Catholic Church

As you stand in the parking lot of St. Marguerite’s Catholic Church, look northwest.  This is New Town, a neighborhood built at the beginning of the 20th century that became home to many immigrants to Tooele to work in the mining industry.  Strong community bonds formed over the decades and still exist to some today.
