Minesota Mine

This former copper mine near Rockland was one of the most productive early mines in Michigan’s Copper Country. Mining started at the site in 1848, and from 1885 to 1862, the Minesota Mine was the most productive copper mine in the United States. (The single “n” in the name was a mistake made in the mine’s incorporation papers.) Today a sign commemorates the site of the mine just south of Rockland.
