Ghost Towns

 

Thousands of immigrants moved to the Copper Country to begin work in the mines but once the price of copper went down and the mines started to close those immigrants moved elsewhere looking for work which left many towns abandoned.  You can still see glimpses of many old and forgotten mine towns throughout the Peninsula, but be careful as you explore!  Some of the remains may be on private property or some may be structurally unsound so we ask that you pay careful attention to your surroundings as you explore these old ghost towns.
