In addition to the usual mine building, there are about sixty good dwellings on the location, also a town site, Mass City which is the terminus of the Mineral Range Railroad and a station on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul line. It has a bank, shipping facilities and several churches. The Mass stamp mill is at Keweenaw Bay on the west shore of that body of water in Baraga county at the junction of the Mineral Range and Duluth South Shore & Atlantic railways, thirty four miles northeast of the mine. Here are also wharves, a warehouse shops and quite a collection of dwellings. In 1909 the Mass mine produced 1,723,436 pounds of refined copper.
