Calumet Historic District

Area W of MI 26 S of Calumet Lake to Osceola, Calumet, Michigan



Allegedly in 1875, the Miscowaubik Club building was constructed as a dwelling for a Calumet and Hecla Company chief mining engineer, Thomas Hoatson. The rectangular plan measured approximately 108'7" x 83'2', and the two-and one-half-story, wood frame entity rising up from this footprint was covered by a gable roof. The structure was converted into a private club in 1903 by the firm Parker, Thomas and Rice along with the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company's architectural department. By the mid-1970s, the frame building had suffered from some incompatible exterior remodeling and extensive interior renovations. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS MI-276)
