a piece of history
Before The Chippewa Club was established, it was the house atop the hill..
On August 12, 1898, Iron Mountain's first daily newspaper, The Daily Tribune, printed the article of a new residence being built by the Superintendent of the Chapin Mine, on Lundington Hill. Within a year from that publication, Chapin Mine General Manger James MacNaughton moved his family into the residence. Designed by Marquette architect D. Fred Charlton, the residence boasted 12 rooms, stainglass windows, a formal staircase, multiple fireplaces, and finely fitted Oak woodwork. The MacNaughton family called the house home until 1901 when Otto Conrad Davidson replaced MacNaughton as General Manager of the Chapin Mine and moved his family into the residence. The home served as the family's residence until 1935 and stood empty until Davidson's widow sold the home in 1945 to F. Albee Flodin and Martin D. Thomas to begin fulfilling their vision for the property.
