“America's first real mining boom”
Coppertown Mining Museum offers a variety of exhibits relative to the Copper Mining Industry and the Community Life associated with it. The most recent and popular exhibits are the Rastello Shoe Shop that was in Calumet and a portion of the Pattern Shop which was the original use of the entire museum building for almost 70 years of its’ history. Other exhibits include minerals, prehistoric mining, C & H Hospital operating room, early one room school, the Italian Hall Tragedy, and others. Two new exhibits under way are a steam laundry from Calumet that began operation in the early part of the last century and a machine shop with large machines used to make and repair the axles and wheels of the streetcars from the Houghton County Traction Company that operated in the area from 1900 - 1932.
