When the copper rush arrived in the Keweenaw Peninsula, it also saw the start of the development of an extensive rail network. In this livestream Zoom presentation, Sproule introduces and explores the history of the many railroad companies that operated in the Copper Country and linked the area to the rest of the United States.

Questions and/or comments will be accepted during the talk through Zoom chat, and will be addressed after the presentation. You'll also have the opportunity at this time to ask questions directly.
