ESCANABA — An Escanaba home was recognized Thursday by the state of Michigan with a historical marker. The house, located on 606 Ogden Ave., was built in 1873 and was originally owned by Charles Brotherton. Brotherton came to the Upper Peninsula in 1852 and was a pioneer surveyor whose work for the U.S. government and the Chicago and North Western Railroad played a key role in the settlement of the region. The house is currently owned by David and Janet Curtis.The home has been listed on the State Register of Historic Sites based on the significant contribution Brotherton made in the U.P. A special ceremony commemorating the home was held Thursday, with local dignitaries, historians, Brotherton family descendants, and other residents in attendance.“On behalf of the Curtis family, I would like to welcome you here today,” said Janet Curtis.Delta County Historical Society President Charles Lindquist provided attendees with a brief history of not only Brotherton, but the home itself.
