The City Beautiful — Your Four Season Recreational Center

The City of Montreal, or the “City Beautiful”, as it has come to be known, was built and maintained by the mining company.  Built within walking distance of the Main Shaft beautiful white “mining company” homes were built for the miners and their families. These homes range from 2 and 3 story bedroom homes for the “captains and foremen” to smaller single-story bungalows for the workers.  Many of these houses are still standing and have been included in the National Register of Historic Places under the name of The Montreal Company location Historic District. Water and sewer systems were also provided, again by the mining company.

The Montreal Mine closed in 1962 after approximately 100 years of operation. The miners dug to a depth of 4335 ft below the surface.  45 million tons of ore were shipped during this period.  Some of the mine buildings are still standing since this closing 51 years ago.  Some are still being used but not for mining operations.  The main shaft has since filled with water.  An overflow from this shaft flows crystal clear water directly into the Montreal River.  Tailing piles still loom over the site that housed the Mining Offices and Doctors Clinic.

During this time of uncertainty with the Wisconsin Supreme Court's decision to remove the Stay at Home order, I believe we as a community can slowly move forward in a calculated way that protects the safety of our families and community. Please exercise caution and follow the CDC's social distancing guidelines to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Below is the Iron County Health Department's website, which provides information on the COVID-19 virus, State orders, and CDC guidelines for protection.
Thank you for following the guidelines of the Stay at Home Order and slowing the spread of the virus. Together as a community, we will move forward, and the safety and good health of us all remain the City's focus.

Stay well.
