A town's legacy quietly dismantled

The former mill of Smurfit-Stone Container Corp. in Ontonagon has been steadily dismantled since the summer. The mill was Ontonagon's largest employer until it closed Dec. 31, 2009.

Thousands of people worked in the mill since it was built in 1921. It produced corrugated medium for cardboard boxes.
