Over 150 years of mining history are featured at the Keweenaw Peninsula’s premier tourist attraction!
Operating from 1847 until 1887, this authentic, historic mine offers a walking tour that takes you 100 feet below ground to explore one of the earliest mines to operate during the country’s first major mining boom.
