Celebration of a Century: Calcite in
If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit Rogers City, a small community in northeast Michigan, this is the time to do so. Its annual Nautical Festival draws thousands to the area, but this year is also the 100th anniversary of the Calcite Limestone Quarry – the largest in the world – and the occasion is definitely worth celebrating.
In operation since 1912, the calcite plant has employed generations of workers in Rogers City. To celebrate its centennial anniversary and history, the Presque Isle District Library (PIDL) has teamed up with numerous community partners for a monumental project.
