63. Archeological Inventory of Ghyllbank, and 1890s
Copper Mining Settlement, Isle Royale National Park.
A pedestrian inventory was undertaken in the area occupied by the 1890s copper mining settlement of Ghyllbank, located on the western end of Isle Royale National Park near the Windigo Ranger Station. Five features from this period were identified: the foundation of the Wendigo Copper Company headquarters; the company dock; a road remnant; part of the existing store; and one structural depression. A pre-1941 stone-lined well that may date to the mining period was also located and mapped.
