MARQUETTE - The Marquette Regional History Center has opened the special exhibit "Celebrating 80 Years at Bay Cliff Health Camp," which will be on display through June 1.
Elba Morse, R.N., and Dr. Goldie Cornelieson began the camp during the Depression to help undernourished children of the Upper Peninsula. With the polio epidemic of the 1940s, its mission expanded to reach out to physically disabled children, a mission it continues today. Visitors can see early therapeutic devices and view historic film of the campers.
Viewing of this special exhibit is part of normal admission fees. For more information, visit www.marquettehistory.org or call 226-3571.
