Program:
Michigan Copper Mining: Black Powder Era
Presented by Jim Cassell

Collector of History, Jim Cassell, returns to share a his amazing collection of tools used during the 19th and early 20th centuries to mine copper in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Copper mining was first done by Native Americans in the Keweenaw Peninsula between 5000 and 1200 BCE. Shortly after Michigan’s statehood, mining companies were established and boomed from 1850 through 1881 producing 3/4 of the nation’s copper. Jim will amaze you with his collection and knowledge!
