The picturesque ghost town of Old Victoria is one of the first sites ever mined for copper in the new world. This is where the famous “Ontonagon Boulder” was discovered that now resides in the National Museum of Natural Science at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.
Four buildings have so far been restored, two boarding houses, a single family dwelling, and a bachelors and others are in the midst of reconstruction in a location formerly called Finn Town. Built nearly 100 years ago, these hand-hewn logs cabins served as housing for the miners at the Victoria Copper Mine and guided tours are available to take visitors through the rooms furnished with period antiques reminiscent of the men and women who once lived there.
