The Champion Mining Company was created in 1899. This headframe was constructed in 1902 near Painesdale at the base of the Keweenaw Peninsula. The mine closed in 1967. The old mine is not far from M-26 and the Bill Nicholls Trail passes by the remnants of the old mine buildings. It is still private property but you can see a lot of it from the road and trail.
