2022 Ishpeming Historic Main Street Tour
Where: Parking lot at corner of Main & Division
Ishpeming historian Karen Kasper will again be hosting tours of historic Main Street. First held last year, Karen has discovered more interesting information about the historic buildings on Main Street. If you missed last summer's tour, don't miss attending the tour this year as Karen will be moving to a different section of historic Ishpeming in 2023. Many of Main Street's historic buildings will be included, and learn about the disastrous fire of 1874 that claimed much of the downtown.
This year's historic Main Street tour kicks off on Tuesday, June 28 at 6:30 p.m. during Ishpeming's Hematite History Week. The tours then resume every Tuesday in August starting at 6:30 p.m.
The dates include August 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th. We will meet in the parking lot on Main Street across from the Ishpeming City Hall.
There will be a suggested donation of $10 for the tour with children 12 and under free of charge. All proceeds from the tour will go to benefit the Ishpeming Area Historical Society. This is a walking tour and in case of inclement weather, the tour will be cancelled.
