1983 Crystal Falls Video

Ran across this the other night. It was a half hour special shown on local TV in 1983. We had already vacationed numerous times over the previous 8 years and appreciated everything the reporter said about the people and the town. We stopped at Ken's Bakery each trip and were sad to see it close. We subscribed to the Diamond Drill so we could keep up with local goings on and when that ended, it just wasn't the same. We remember the bus depot on the corner where Bruno made the best slider burgers around! After more than 35 years of vacationing up there, it will always be part of our lives. Haven't visited for a few years now but Crystal will forever be in our memories as the best times.

I love Crystal Falls. Been there many times, mostly at Jon Aho's place for our digging trips. Its a nice respite from the daily Illinois grind.

I was only there once & that was about 5 years ago. I was on my way to Houghton but had to stop by & see Jon Aho, but he was not home, he was out to Church since it was a Sunday Morning I think. LEON.
