View of Ironwood, Gogebic County, M.I., 1886 / drawn & published by H. Wellge.

This bird’s-eye view print of Ironwood, Michigan was drawn and published by Henry Wellge, Beck & Pauli Lith. Co. in 1886. Ironwood was a new town in 1886, serving the numerous iron ore mines that were established throughout this upper peninsula region. A branch off the main line of the Milwaukee Lake Shore & Western Railroad, at this point, directly reached profitable mines such as the Ironwood Mine, the Aurora Mine, the Pabst Mine and the Norrie Mines.

Ironwood also maintained a valuable timber industry at the time. Ontonagon County’s boundaries were re-established in 1887 creating Gogebic County. That same year most of Ironwood’s business core buildings, pictured in this map, were destroyed by fire.

The image includes labeled streets, buildings, waterways and railroad routes. Lower inset illustrations depict Ironwood Last Fall and Mining at the Colby.
