Museum of the Keweenaw
On a lovely day in Houghton, Michigan, I had visited an interesting bookstore, met an old friend for lunch, and discovered a fabulous library. But my posts about Copper Country would not be complete without one more brief account. Leaving the library, I headed back to our hotel room to find that my husband had not yet returned from his geologic adventure. So I calculated that I had a small sliver of time, perhaps enough time to try to find the old Carnegie building that had been home to the Portage Lake District Library from 1910 to 2006. Houghton is not that big a town, after all, and having already received general directions as to the location of the original structure, I decided that a quick trip to get a photo of the place was in order. So off I went.
