A few miles northeast of the Upper Peninsula town of Crystal Falls is a stone memorial. It is a memorial to the 27 men that died when the Mansfield Mine collapsed and the water from the Michigamme River flooded the shaft. All the men working in the mine on September 28, 1893, drowned. It is a tragedy that these men who were just trying to provide for their families died. This stone memorial in the Upper Peninsula is a reminder of the lives lost and the sacrifices made by earlier Yoopers.
