Casa Loma display
The Menominee Range Historical Foundation’s three museums now are open for the season. The special exhibit of the Casa Loma Restaurant is now on display at the Menominee Range Historical Museum, 300 E. Ludington St. in downtown Iron Mountain.
The Casa Loma restaurant opened in 1941 at the intersection of U.S. 2 and Pine Mountain Road and remained in operation until 1985.
