NEGAUNEE, Mich. (AP) - Music, refreshments and a new exhibit are planned for the Michigan Iron Industry Museum’s annual open house in the Upper Peninsula.

The event is scheduled for Sunday at the museum in Negaunee.

Museum historian Troy Henderson says the exhibit is about the people who worked at the Carp River Forge in the mid-1800s and their legacy. It includes photos and artifacts. An interactive map enables visitors to use archaeological evidence to explore where people lived and worked at the pioneer industrial site.

The band White Water will perform two free concerts.

The Michigan Iron Industry Museum is one of 11 nationally accredited museums administered by the Michigan History Center, an agency within the state Department of Natural Resources.
