Work continues to renovate the historic home on N. Main Street across from the Lutheran church. The large home will become a substance recovery residence for about six to eight women. The residence will be operated and is owned by Great Lakes Recover Centers headquartered with administrative offices in Ishpeming. It will be known as the Ripple Recovery Residence due to the driving force for the project by retired MD Dr. Harold Ripple of Skanee. Many others have united behind the cause and volunteered to renovate the interior of the home over the past couple of years.
