    WINLOCK — After six years, restoration work on the old pioneer church at St. Urban, formerly known as The Assumption Catholic Church, is just about finished.

    The pews in the St. Urban Church came from the old Catholic Church in Chehalis, (now the gym of St. Joseph's school.) A lot of folks in Chehalis grew up sitting in those pews. Folks from Chehalis can rekindled their childhood memories by visiting the St. Urban museum when it opens to the public.
