Many fond memories


My family and I were delighted to read of the renovations to the Joseph Addison Crowell home in Iron Mountain.

I am the great-grandson of Dr. Crowell and the grandson of his daughter Ruth Crowell Werner. As the current owners may know, she was born there in 1887, graduated from the University of Wisconsin, and married fellow Wisconsin graduate Walter Werner in 1911

He subsequently was employed as a civil engineer in Chicago and in St. Louis and later was the owner of a construction company in Breckinridge, Texas, where she died in 1933.

We were privileged to tour the house in the early 1980s and have many fond memories of that visit. Please convey our appreciation to the current owners for their preservation efforts.
