Mining in the Upper Peninusla has a rich and deep-rooted history, and that history is on exhibit right now.
Michigan Tech’s Archive department has put together an exhibit on one of the biggest strikes in Michigan history. “Tumult and Tragedy: Michigan’s 1913-1914 Copper Strike” chronicles one of the confrontations between organized labor and mining companies.
The exhibit features photographs, newspaper clippings, songs and artifacts from the strike.
The exhibit can be viewed through February 28th at the Carnegie Museum in downtown Houghton.
