■ The Story of the Cuyuna Range through industrial archaeology

CROSBY - Unlimited Learning presents the story of the Cuyuna Range through places and events by Fred Sutherland, anthropologist and industrial archaeologist, from 1:30-4 p.m. July 9 at Heartwood Senior Living, Crosby.

Last year Sutherland and 12 volunteer local community members surveyed and documented 876 buildings, 500 of which are located in Crosby. Among the survey of structures in Crosby, Cuyuna, Riverton, Wolford, Trommald, Deerwood and Ironton were company houses, meeting halls, churches and mine structures. The team was surprised to find a historic log cabin from 1900 or earlier that was converted into a barn. Also, upon review of the Taylor House, aka “The Stone House” on Route 6 south of Deerwood as an early structure, Sutherland and local historic preservation groups are endeavoring to have it placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Plans for this year involve doing interviews with local residents who can add more to mining history and opinions. Sutherland believes that the involvement of community volunteers provided in-depth knowledge of the area and was an immensely helpful key to success. The appreciation of the history and heritage of these longtime residents will continue to promote and protect the history and heritage of the Cuyuna Iron Range long after he is gone. Several volunteers will participate in this event. Sutherland chose the Cuyuna Range as an area to study for his doctorate in industrial archaeology from Michigan Technical University. Part of his interest also includes assisting the Cuyuna Iron Range Heritage Network and Crow Wing County with interpretive information at the Milford Mine.

A reception and membership appeal will be held at intermission. Non-members, $5. Questions? Call Karen Wilson, 218-546-6781.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with numerous job titles since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently as Digital Editor. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work these 30+ years. I was present and worked on the our web page when our original BrainerdDispatch.com website first went live on April 26, 1994.
