NOTICE: This summer, as always, visitors are welcome to enjoy Old Victoria from the outside where there is plenty of room to allow for social distancing. However, the Visitor Center and other buildings are closed to the public until further notice as we cannot meet the guidelines required to allow visitors inside.

Both of our annual events have been cancelled – Log Cabin Day that was to be held the last Sunday in June and the Old Victoria Craft Fair that was to be held on the third Sunday in August.

Why not film something and post it on YouTube such as a tour of the cabins. visitor Center and the old mine area. And include a brief history of the mining area..

Best place ever! The people and staff are amazing! It’s a bucket list item for sure. It brings you back to the lifestyle aspect of a more agrarian and nuclear family way of life. The learning and conversations are enriching, since the walks around the grounds are incredibly rewarding as characters effectively reenact and educate around relevant topics. Participants are living out past stories and interpreting through hands-on history events.

The temporary closure is a good decision for everyone’s health! #StaySafe

Neat place. We were there when the first started rebuilding. Young guy named Chris ( I think) was working on it.

Oh, darn! I always enjoyed the craft fair tremendously!

**** With the lack of visitors we should all send in some donations to keep the living history alive****

Be safe! See you next year.


I hope to get there someday.

Since I’ve found this FB page, I am determined to see Old Victoria, after I can get an effective Covid vaccine!!!

The Hoopers of Arvon

Before the Thomas Hooper family came to the Victoria Mine, they lived at Arvon in Baraga County. There, Capt. Thomas was agent for the slate quarry and twins Jessie Lucile and Bessie Louise were born and lived their short lives in its associated community. Daughter Augusta was also born in Arvon, in late 1885.

Slate was used for roofing, beneath the felt on billiard tables, as gravestones, and served many other purposes. #ghosttowns #coppercountryconnections
