For some site history: The Carnegie Museum's gets its name from the Gilded Age philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who gave Houghton (and hundreds of other communities) funds to build a public library in 1909. But before the current stone and brick building, a large wooden structure occupied the site and had lots of different uses. It was a skating rink occupied by the Michigan Mining School (Michigan Tech’s predecessor) in 1888. Then it became an Opera House complete with “stage and scenery” and grocery storage in the basement.
