Michigamme’s Steamer Comes Home April 24th

April 17, 2019

Michigamme, MI – Michigamme’s Steamer Comes Home will be held on Wednesday, April 24th from 6:30-8:00 pm at the Marquette Regional History Center. Learn about early fire-fighting technology and a heroic community effort through the lens of an engaging historic storyteller, Bill Van Kosky.

In 1900 the community of Michigamme bought a horse drawn steam fire engine. By 1962 it was obsolete and sold. Many valued the steamer and its historic beauty, setting off a multi-decade search and effort to bring it home. $5 suggested donation.
