An underground copper mine consisting of two shafts located south of Houghton. The Globe Mining Company was organized in 1864 to explore three, one mile square tracts of land. Shortly after organization, it was discovered that the southern extensions of the Isle Royal, Portage, Pewabic, and Hancock Lodes crossed the property. The mining operation at the Globe was small with only one operating shaft throughout most of its life. In 1898, the company was sold to the Atlantic Mining Company, and again to Copper Range in 1908. Copper Range continued exploration work on the property until the outbreak of World War 2 when all operations were ceased. One large rock pile exists where copper and datolite can be found.

Edit: As of 2018, all remaining rock piles have been removed from the site.
