Copper Range Historical Museum
A onetime bank building houses this small local museum focusing on "the range towns": the Copper Range Company's mining towns south of Houghton: Atlantic Mine, South Range, Baltic, Trimountain, Painesdale, and Winona—and related farms, churches, and family histories. Displays change each spring. The general store in the back room is always a favorite. The miners' life exhibit with personal lunch buckets and hats is a perennial, too. The hands-on What-‘s-It? table for kids changes yearly.
