Mansfield Location & Pioneer Church

In 1893, the Michigamme River broke through and flooded the underground mine, dooming 27 miners to death. Enjoy the view as you take a stroll across the Michigamme River on the historic concrete-filled spandrel arch bridge built in 1915. Just west of the Mansfield mine disaster you can visit some of the original buildings from the community including the Mansfield Church which was completely restored in 1987 and serves as a landmark and reminder of the small mining settlement. Open all year.
