Chassell Heritage Center

The forested landscape and navigable waters helped to create the mill town of Chassell. Exhibits tell of the early days; vintage photographs allow you to meet the main characters. Imagine the life of a lumberjack toiling in the winter woods. Read a WWI love letter sent home from the frontline. Take a walk down the booming 1920ís main street. Visit Portage Entry, a fishing and boat building village. Enjoy, up close, the intricate details of authentic vintage clothing.

French Canadians, legendary expert timber men, immigrated to the river valleys and hilltops. Great white pines were felled and became the supporting timbers of the copper mines. Easterners came to oversee the mill. The Finnish people, longing to free themselves of the hard toil in the mines, homesteaded the cleared lands. These cultures are celebrated in special Thursday evening presentations during July and August. Check the web site for times and topics.
