The long-abandoned and vandalized Camp Baraga minimum security inmate work camp is being razed. A crew from MD Contracting of Baraga was demolishing buildings at the old camp last  week. The tall chain link fence has been taken down, the loops of razor wire carefully removed and coiled, and asbestos materials removed and sealed.  To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
