1. Ironwood City Hall Marker
Inscription.  This building served as City Hall for Ironwood which was settled in 1885 as the commercial center of the Gogebic iron mining district. Ironwood incorporated as a city in 1889 and erected the building a year later. Designed by George Mennie, this structure of Lake Superior sandstone and brick initially contained a jail, fire station, library, and city offices. Then fire and police departments occupied the building exclusively. Firemen have hung their hoses to dry from the 85 foot tower.
 
Erected 1977 by Michigan History Division, Department of State. (Marker Number L0399.)
