Notes
Survey number HABS MI-276
Building/structure dates: 1875 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1903 subsequent work
Significance: Allegedly in 1875, the Miscowaubik Club building was constructed as a dwelling for a Calumet and Hecla Company chief mining engineer, Thomas Hoatson. The rectangular plan measured approximately 108'7" x 83'2', and the two-and one-half-story, wood frame entity rising up from this footprint was covered by a gable roof. The structure was converted into a private club in 1903 by the firm Parker, Thomas and Rice along with the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company's architectural department. By the mid-1970s, the frame building had suffered from some incompatible exterior remodeling and extensive interior renovations.
