Quincy Mine Office
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, administrators of the successful Quincy Mining Company occupied this stately Jacobsville sandstone building. Today, its office spaces are leased to private enterprises. Future plans call for both an interior and exterior restoration to return it to its former historic appearance. The building is not open to the public at this time.

Woody Guthrie's song "1913 Massacre" brought attention to a tragedy that occurred in Calumet, Michigan on December 24, 1913 during a bitter copper miner's strike. Reports claim that a shout of fire caused panic at a party at the Italian Hall. 74 people died in the stampede down the steep stairway.
