Despite many upgrades and improvements over the years, the Calumet Colosseum (seen here in the 1920s) has been able to maintain its historic charm.

Calumet Colosseum is marking its 100th anniversary with a hockey game between the teams that started it all back in 1914.

The Calumet Wolverines and Portage Lake Pioneers will skate against each other on Monday night. The two rivals also were on the rink on Jan. 6, 1914, when the Colosseum opened, according to WLUC-TV in Marquette.
