NEGAUNEE - In November 1926, the worst mining disaster in Michigan's history occurred at the Barnes-Hecker Mine in Ely Township.

Fifty-one miners were killed in about 15 minutes when the mine began to cave in and fill with water.

A group of six actors through the Peninsula Arts Appreciation Council is exploring the emotions of a community following such a disaster with "The Dry," a play by local writer Paul Olson. "The Dry" tells the fictionalized story of a town just after a mine disaster, based on the Barnes-Hecker disaster.
