Halfway Ranger Station Historic District Open House

February 2, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Corps is hosting an open house at Halfway Ranger Station Historic District near Ely, MN. The Ranger Station has a history that goes back to the early 1900s starting as a lumber company site, then a ranger dwelling for the Forest Service, and its most recent use by the USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station for fire and mammal research. We are excited to share this historic site with the community and give an update about its happenings and future. Come for a tour or just to look around. We will have a bonfire, plenty of history, and great views. Feel free to bring snowshoes to explore the rest of the grounds! If you don’t have your own pair of snowshoes, you can rent them from a local business in Ely.

*Please note that the site does not have running water and the facilities is an outhouse.

Other questions or inqueries please email jessica@northernbedrockcorps.org

*This project has been financed in part with funds provided by the State of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.
