Explosives magazine - Homer Mine
The Homer Mine is an underground iron mine in the Menominee Range, Iron County, Michigan. The Mine was opened in 1914 and operated into the 1950s by the M. A. Hanna Company. Its workings had reached a depth of some 1,000 feet by the early 1950s. The M. A. Hanna Company was one of the large mining companies that moved into the Michigan iron area in the early 1900s, consolidated smaller properties, and engaged in exploration for other economic deposits. It was dissolved in 1965, then resurrected in 1985.
