Description 

The district has been termed a nationally significant example of industrial community planning. It is part of the Gogebic Iron Range, one of five iron ore districts that comprise the Lake Superior mining region. Montreal's residences reflect the progression of housing policies that were implemented from the mid-1800s onwards, whereas the landscape recommendations of the town planner and landscape architect Albert D.Taylor were commissioned by the Oglebay-Norton Mining Company in 1924. -- Historic American Landscapes Survey
