Outdoors exhibit in Marquette

MARQUETTE — The Marquette Regional History Center will present a special exhibit “The Great Outdoors: The History of Recreation in Marquette County,” starting Monday through Jan. 23.

Marquette has a long and rich history of outdoor recreation, beginning with the first tourist who came here to fish in 1849. The exhibits shows the changes from the first camps in the late 1800s to the first car campers and the development of “The Land of Hiawatha” in the 1940s.

Encounter the first-hand stories of the local pioneers in outdoor recreation, including skiers, bicyclists, rock climbers and ice climbers.

Cost is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $3 for students and $2 for ages 12 and younger.
