McKinney TX (Low 33 Sun mixing with Clouds High 64)

We are still at Camp MCD waiting for our new shades and valences. It has been cold and rainy so we have not done much sightseeing so we decided to catch up on some blogging. After our story on the Mosquito Inn we realized we still had a lot to document from our stay on the Upper Peninsula this past summer. Today we cover the Coppertown Mining Museum in Calumet, a Keweenaw Heritage Site. We toured the museum with our friends Bob and Wilma and Jim and Sharon.

The museum covered all things copper mining from the offices in the mining companies

to the medical facilities that the mining companies had

to the one room school rooms that the mining companies provided

to the equipment used in the mine or to repair the mine equipment

We found a couple of things to be unique. Here is a steam powered laundry

along with the Miss Coppertown beauty contest crown

and a oak stove

It was another great place to tour in the Upper Peninsula.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. You just keep giving us more reasons to return to the UP. Thanks

  2. Another great museum.

    I say Miss Coppertown's crown is a very unique
