MRHC Presents: Sugar Loaf Bart King Monument Centennial September 22, 2021

The Marquette Regional History Center Presents:
Sugar Loaf Bart King Monument Centennial
Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 6:00 p.m.
Back in the late fall of 1921, a group of community members and Boy Scouts
finished a stone monument on the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain. This monument
stands today, 100 years later, to recognize a WWI soldier from Marquette, Bart
King. We will commemorate his life and sacrifice during WWI along with the
volunteers who built this monument. This included stone mason Harmidas Dupras,
and scout leaders such as Perry Hatch, who organized the large effort of hauling
stones and supplies.
Start your hike at our information table at the new south parking lot. Join us at 6:00
at the top of Sugar Loaf for a short presentation on the history of this centennial
monument. Free and open to the public; donations always appreciated.
