The Ironwood Area Historical Society museum, home to the largest artifact collection in Gogebic County is in need of a new roof. Housed in the iconic Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Depot constructed in 1893, the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is considered the “signature building” in Ironwood.
The thirty-year-old roof requires immediate replacement, the eaves and fascia are in need of repairs and the cupola needs to be removed and restored. The total budget for the project is $65,000, with approximately $12,000 currently available in historical society accounts.
History matters because it connects us to our past and reminds us of what made Ironwood a great place to live. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this effort that means so much to our community. Go to GoFundMe to donate today!
