The township square park is dedicated to those pioneering families whose new world lives started in or near Houghton Township during the copper mining boom. Many of those pioneers are in the Evergreen cemetery south of town. You are welcome to visit them.

Some of them have been remembered by their descendants with  name plates on a plaque in the pavilion.


We consider someone a local pioneer if they came to the area in and around Houghton Township before 1920 or were born here before 1900.
