Future Historians program held

This summer, more than 40 youth from the Michigan Iron Industry Museum’s Future Historians program brought history to life at Copper Harbor’s historic Fort Wilkins. Every year, volunteers from the group learn about life in the 19th century, including etiquette, chores and pioneer pastimes, then travel to Copper Harbor to portray children who lived at or near the 1870 army post. Participants in the Aug. 14-16 history day camp were, Front row, seated from left: Carson Wernholm, Ina Holt, Grace Rickauer, Sadie Rogers, Ingrid Holt, Monet Argeropoulos, and Nathan Voss.

Back Row: Anna Beckstrom, Sydney Voss, Aili Harmon, Janel Voss and Rebecca Ivey. For more information about the Future Historians, call the Michigan Iron Industry Museum at 906-475-7857.
