In the area southwest of Negaunee, you will find several old staircases built in the berms and hills that lead to nowhere. This region of the city is known as Old Town and had several houses and buildings surrounding the Jackson Mine. The mine closed in the 1940s and by the 50s several structures in the area had collapsed due to shafts underneath caving in. Because of the unstable grounds, the buildings in Old Town were either moved or demolished. It is now part of a park that the Heritage Trail passes through. You can still drive down the old streets and see several staircases that once led to homes in Old Town.
