Description


This turn of the century depot is dedicated to life on the Gogebic Range. It exhibits history of the mining days, the school systems dating back over 100 years, and the history of the old railroad system.



The train depot was constructed in 1892 and was active during the iron mining boom days of the Gogebic Range, which ended in 1966. The beautiful structure is built of sandstone and brick in Richard Romanesque style. The depot is the last remaining one on the Gogebic Range and is home to the Ironwood Area Historical Society Museum and the Ironwood Area Chamber of Commerce.



Open 12 p.m. - 4 p.m. Memorial Day to Labor Day or by appointment.
