Calumet & Hecla Semi-Centennial Celebration

Historic Sites, Historic Mines, Human Settlements, Cities and Towns, Metal Trade, Copper Industry and Trade, Copper Mines and Mining Overview of C&H semi-centennial celebration in 1916. This view is to the east and shows the area where the speeches and presentations took place. This was the "commons", later Agassiz Park, now apartments for retired folks. Calumet #2 shaft house, Calumet boiler house, Superior engine house, drill shops, Calumet dry, MacNaughton's light tower, the powerhouse, and the C&H office building are in the background. View was probably made from the roof of Vertin's store since Mrs. Fred Haun and Mrs. John Vertin were sisters and Fred Haun had worked for Vertin's during his high school years.
