The Marquette Regional History Center presents:
Why? The Untold Story of the Barnes-Hecker Mine Disaster
Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at 6:00pm
Join us for this important presentation given by James Paquette. The real history of Michigan’s Iron Country is not the history of mines and mining companies, it is the history of the miners themselves, largely made up of immigrants who came to the UP with their families seeking the American Dream. This presentation honors that history by bringing to light the untold truth about the worst mining disaster in Michigan history—the November 3, 1926 cave-in at the Barnes-Hecker Mine that took the lives of 51 men. This is a 90 minute program followed by a Q&A session at the Marquette Regional History Center. Call 906.226.3571 for more details. $5 suggested donation.
