Memorial Service for President William McKinley

West Side of the 500 Block of South Stephenson Avenue, Iron Mountain, September 19, 1901: Iron Mountain, like the rest of the nation, mourned the death of President William McKinley, who was assassinated by anarchist Leon Czolgosz while receiving callers at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, on September 6, 1901. McKinley died September 14, and Iron Mountain’s memorial services were held September 19 at Cemetery Park. William S. Laing, marshal of the day, led the procession of about 2,000 marchers, who were moving south on Stephenson Avenue between A and B Streets when this photograph was taken. The unoccupied site on the west side of the street was where the Commercial Bank was constructed in 1929.
