LANSING, MI-- A crowdfunding campaign has been established to restore the historical Carp River beehive kiln and place it on the Iron Ore Heritage Trail.
The goal of the campaign is to construct a new gateway park along the Trail. The featured rebuilt kiln will be surrounded with art, landscaping, walkways, lighting, benches and interpretive signs. The Carp River Kiln Gateway Plaza will become a new community space paying tribute to Marquette’s iron mining story and welcoming visitors to the area.
If a $25,000 crowdfunding goal is reached by June 21, 2019 the project will win a matching grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Public Spaces Community Places program.
