Calumet and Laurium were boom-towns during the copper mining days in the Keweenaw with the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company, the richest and biggest mining company of them all. Laurium was more of a residential community with fine old mansions, many still privately owned and beautifully maintained. Now these smaller communities have interesting historical places to visit as well as delightful shops. Both towns are part of the Keweenaw National Historical Park, a historic district incl uding landmarks in Calumet, the Quincy Hoist in Hancock, and the smelter in Ripley.

The Keweenaw was the site of America’s first copper rush in 1847, a wild and difficult frontier for those who lived there. Established in 1992, this newest National Park commemorates the heritage of copper mining and encompasses numerous cooperating sites from Ontonagon to Copper Harbor telling the story of the mines, the machinery, and the people.
The information desk is located at the Quincy Mine Gift Shop.
