Michigamme's Steamer Comes Home

Shows & Events
06:30 PM To 08:00 PM
Location: Marquette Regional History Center, Marquette
In 1900 the community of Michigamme bought a horse drawn steam fire engine. By 1962 it was obsolete and sold. Yet many valued the steamer and its historic beauty, setting off a multi-decade search and effort to bring it home. Learn about early fire-fighting technology and a heroic community effort through the lens of an engaging historic storyteller, Bill Van Kosky. $5 suggested donation.
