Freda - Champion Mill

Historic Sites, Historic Mines, Armed Forces, Soldiers, Transportation, Automotive Freda came alive Sunday, when tourists, former residents, friends and neighbors from the Lake Superior shore towns of Redridge, Beacon Hill and Freda converged on the town to note the dedication of the Veteran's Honor Roll. Some misty eyes were observed as the old smokestack of the now defunct Champion Mill belched black clouds reminiscent of the days long gone by. The mill site was removed years ago leaving only the stack as a relic of the building. Crowds are shown gathered near the honor roll in background with the flag waving overhead.
