Iron industry

NEGAUNEE — The Michigan Iron Industry Museum will host a full schedule of family fun and educational activities for visitors of all ages this summer. Offerings include everything from music to classic cars and artillery demonstrations to historic bike tours on the Iron Ore Heritage Trail.

In addition, a July/August weekday program series will cover presentations on the Copper Strike of 1913-14, local antique bottles, U.P. folk music, Iron Mountain’s Cornish pumping engine, and iron ore pelletizing pioneer Tsu Ming Han.

Located in forested ravines nine miles west of Marquette, the Michigan Iron Industry Museum tells the story of Michigan’s three iron ranges and the hard-working immigrants who helped build modern America. Overlooking the Carp River and the site of the region’s first iron forge, the museum features exhibits and outdoor trails that interpret the large-scale capital and human investment that made Michigan an industrial leader. The 22-minute, high-definition film “Iron Spirits – Life on the Michigan Iron Range,” is shown seven times daily.
