It was five years ago when I first packed up my camera and headed off into the CC to begin documenting it’s rich heritage, beginning an adventure that has resulted in hundreds of posts and thousands of photos having been featured here on CCE. But as the years have gone by, the amount of easily accessible and open sites that I can document have quickly dwindled. As I prepare to begin my sixth season of exploration this spring, I find myself in the novel position of having to actively seek out landowners and organizations willing to allow me to document the treasures they have in their possession. So I have decided to began that process here on CCE, with the following plea…
Do you or someone you know own a piece of Copper Country history? Do you live in an historic home? Are there ruins on your property? Is your business operating out of a historic building? Are you in the process of renovating an old building or home? Is your non-profit organization attempting to preserve a piece of Copper Country history? If so, then perhaps you would be interested in allowing me to document your little piece of history and share it with all the Copper Country enthusiasts that read this blog each day. Not only would it be great way to tell you and your family’s story (and maybe learn a bit about its history as well), but it would also be a great way to get some free publicity for your business or organization.
For any one generous enough to let me into their home or onto their property I would be sure to alert my readers that the property is private and strictly off limits. As home land owners you would also have the final say in what I can show on the site and what I can not. It would be under your control if you so choose.
Of course this request isn’t limited to just ruins and buildings. If you have any piece of CC history in you possession that you would like to share, artifacts, photos, or even family stories, by all means send me a note and let me know! I would equally love to feature those things on the site as well.
So if you or anyone you know is interested in sharing your piece of Copper Country history, drop me a note through my contact page and we can set something up! I would be greatly appreciative, and so would my readers and fellow Copper Country enthusiasts! I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
