The Finnish American Heritage Center has an archive full of wonderful treasures each telling a story of their own. On each Friday we present some of these treasures here on The Finnish American Reporter's website and on The Finnish American Heritage Center's Facebook and Twitter accounts for everybody to enjoy!
Found buried years ago on the Moilanen farm and brought to the FAHC by Yalmer Moilanen, this partial shoe belonged to the "Copper Country Giant" Lauri Moilanen. Known as "Big Louie", he reportedly stood 8 feet, 3 inches tall. The 100th anniversary of his death was commemorated in Hancock in 2013.
