National Register - 1845
Some of the oldest settlers here have associated themselves with some gentlemen in Mackinac—under the name of the "Mackinac and Lake Superior Copper Co."—and I am told by one of their agents, they intend building a copper smelting and rolling mill in Buffalo next summer. The Indians appear lo bo very much delighted to see iheir old friends taking hold of this copper business, as they are extremely shy of strangers. The old Indians here seem lo have had some knowledge of copper, as they have many articles formed of this ore, which they hare beaten out of the virgin copper. The soil is muddy clay, very wet excepting immediately around the Tallage, which is sandy.
