Finnish Immigrant Herman Hanka homesteaded this farm after being fired from his mining job. An explosion in the mine killed one of his fellow workers and left Hanka deaf and disabled. He built this farm northwest of Baraga in the 1890s. Generations of the Hanka family lived on this farm until the 1960s. It is now a historical museum and restored to look like it did in the 1920s.
