Old Victoria Restoration

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
