      A look back at the history of Ishpeming

      Ishpeming has a rich history that runs through the heart of the town and today that history was showcased in the Historic Home and Business Tour Sunday afternoon. For $10 people had the opportunity to check out five different homes and businesses across Ishpeming. Tours included the Butler House on Third St., Cohodas Brothers Distributing, as well as the Tap Room at the Mather Inn.

      "I grew up in Ishpeming and I really was interested in seeing some of the older buildings. My aunt used to work at the Tap Room here so I was just curious to see what everything looked like again," said Renee Sleeman, visitor at the Tap Room.

      Tour guides led guest around each building describing each building's history and how it has evolved over time. Proceeds from the event go toward the Ishpeming Area Historical Society.
