Located in a historic Wakefield medical building, the Society boasts a variety of curated rooms that tell the story of life on the Gogebic Range and the town of Wakefield.  Visit the Farmhouse Room and check out items that would have been in most farmhouses from bygone days, such as a loom, a treadle sewing machine, and a variety of furniture and household items.  Other rooms include the Mining Room (with ore and rock samples, miner’s paraphernalia, & pictures of Wakefield mines), the Doctor’s Office (with antique medicine bottles, a dentist chair, and a variety of medical instruments), and the Store (a recreation of a general store from the past, with toys, Wakefield bottling plant bottles, & “sundries”).   Throughout the halls and rooms there are many memorabilia from historic Wakefield businesses.  Stop in and find your connection with Wakefield’s past!  The museum is open from mid-June through early September, Tuesday through Saturday, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
