Settled in 1865, and not to be confused with Atlantic, Atlantic Mine’s name doesn’t say it all. More often than not described as a “post office and mining village [consisting of] chiefly miners”, between 1865 and 1893, the population of Atlantic Mine was scraping 1,600, and Thomas H. Terrill was the town’s first Post Master. Rested on the Copper Range Railroad, 3 & miles south of Houghton, Atlantic Mine was home to two churches, Methodist and Catholic, the stamping and hoisting works of the Atlantic Copper Mining Co., a saloon or two, a school, blacksmith, shoemaker, physician, opera house, an undertaker and also a butcher.Life was generally good in and around Atlantic Mine. That is until the mine ceased operations in the earlier half of the 20th century. In 1927, still booming I presume, the population of the village was 1, 860. But by 1940, the population had plummeted to 1,100. Though this was the common occurrence across the US, the mine let the village down. This was simply a “moderately profitable mine, that paid out less than $1 Million in dividends”. Unfortunately, the community of Atlantic Mine has been in a slump for decades now. There is now no turning back for this former mining boomtown.
