Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Friday, December 30, 2005 - 04:53 am:

Today's shots take in two of our Pasty Cam member's historic buildings. The first one, as you can read on both the home and the sign, is the Laurium Manor Inn, a longtime sponsor here. Then we head into downtown Calumet and get a full frame view of the Calumet Theater, which is a Non-Profit member here at Pasty Central. Checking back in our archives, we were treated to a glimpse inside that clock tower on top the theater, back in June of 2002. If you'd like to take a look at several more historic homes and buildings in the Calumet/Laurium area, join Tina Hyrkas, for a quick slideshow mini-tour.

Good Morning from Baltimore, Maryland! :) Great picture, love all the snow...wish we had some of the white stuff here.

Greetings from Marengo, IL! Most of our snow has melted this past week. Love this site. Come here everyday. (sometimes more than once).

Beautiful pictures with the snow! Pennsylvania (the eastern half) doesn't have much snow now so I especially enjoy seeing the white stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Tina, great pics :) Thanks for the walking tour of town...just wish I was there to enjoy the sights in person ;)

Greetings from Cornwall, UK. We have snow here once in a blue moon so really nice to the pictures. I'm off now for a tiddy oggy - Cornish name for a pasty!

Hello Katiaire, I'm right down the road in Algonquin, IL - a transplant from the great U.P. many years ago after my wife captured me. I am fortunate that I have many sisters & brothers still up nort' to visit and experience the wonders of nature and the warm, friendly people of the U.P.

Here is a link to more historic Victorian homes in Laurium, Historic Homes. I photographed them on December 19, 2000. There are so many beautiful homes there, it's hard to choose a favorite.

Very nice pictures. Looks like snow from the bridge cam is on tap for you all today. We're supposed to get some tonight and tomorrow here in the lower half. I wish I could see the sun occasionally though!!!

Saw an interesting program last evening on PBS with Great Getaways. Dan Urbanski was featured in the Porcupine Mnts. I'm sure many from this area were impressed with his knowledge of the area.

Love the pictures of the old homes in Laurium. We have some stately buildings around here.

YooperGal, Thanks for the pics of the historic pretty. I just love older homes.

By Candy Goulette (Cagoulet) on Friday, December 30, 2005 - 12:22 pm:

Thanks, Tina and Daryl, for a tour of home. I miss these places, so seeing them through your camera lens lets me visit any time I need a little Calumet/Laurium fix!

By Former Fulton Resident (Dashamo) on Friday, December 30, 2005 - 12:30 pm:

Wasn't there a store behind the theater, I think it was called Barsotti's? I know it was on 5th street. Looks like there's nothing at all on that corner anymore.

By FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Friday, December 30, 2005 - 12:48 pm:

For many years now I have been very astonished and disappointed at the lack of interior photos on the Calumet Theater website of the incredible restoration work that has been accomplished in that building.

I have often wondered whether some of our able PastyCamists might be able to help in getting some interior photos on their website.

That building, with it's fairly modest, unassuming exterior appearance, is still one of the Copper Country's best kept secrets -- along with the its amazing number of majestic old Victorian mansions. (Thanks to Daryl & Tina for those pix!)

Shutes Bar next to the Calumet Opera House and the suite over the garage at the Laurium Inn....Two of my favorite places when I am visiting.

By Alex J. Tiensivu (Ajtiensivu) on Friday, December 30, 2005 - 02:54 pm:

My family and I would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy new year. May 2006 be a wonderful year for all.

We are going to be spending it with mama, (Fran from GA), and I have to once again thank Pasty Central for this wonderful Website, because we wouldn't have this terrific friendship with Fran, were it not for this site.

Well, I blew it AGAIN! I had a nice little snow scene to share. Oh well.

By FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Friday, December 30, 2005 - 06:47 pm:

"Well, I blew it AGAIN!"

Give it another shot, Alex, but without the space after the keyword "image", thus:

Dashamo; There still is a party store behind the
theater. Just a little bit more up the next street. Goes by a different name now. But still
has the old rustic look about it.

By Candy Goulette (Cagoulet) on Friday, December 30, 2005 - 11:45 pm:

Former Fulton Resident, Barsotti's is still there, but it's called Dianda's now. You can't see the store from this angle -- what you're seeing is the parking lot on the side of the store.

Enjoyed your pictures. One to add to your collection is the beautiful stone building that I believe is going to be used by the Nat'l. Park Service on the way into Calumet off of US 41. There is a black stone on the right lower side of the front face that must have had a pit in it and the mason took the time to mortar in a small white stone with the same amount of mortar as fills around the others.

It's to the right of the upper pane of the window. You might want to check it out.

Evidently my image didn't upload, I'll put it on my guest photo page and let you look at it there.
