Michigan Has A Lost Village Most People Don’t Know About

A once booming industry in the Great Lake State was copper mining in the Upper Peninsula, also known as Copper Country. Many villages were built surrounding the mines and, when the mines closed, the villages were abandoned and ruined over time. But this lost village in Rockland, Michigan, is now a museum that can give you a glimpse into the past.
