Album: Old Pictures of Copper Country

When the copper mines developed, thousands of miners, famers, and business people created small communities throughout the Copper Country. Building towns, laying out roads, developing the railroad were just part of what happened during the mid 1800s to the early 1900s in the Copper Country.
