• There was a major rebuild" of US 41, between Delaware and Copper Harbor in 1931; it was one of the first work relief road construction projects undertaken in Keweenaw County and is referenced in the records of the Keweenaw County Road Commission. I suspect that this view is of "41" looking up the hill, towards what was then called the Keweenaw Park and Cabins (today, the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge), from the Copper Harbor end of the road. My research indicates that 1930-era Copper Harbor residents called the road & hill by the name of "railing hill;" it was one of the first routes in Keweenaw County to have a guard rail.
