There are numerous ways that kids of all ages can have fun at Keweenaw National Historical Park. During the summer, park rangers offer guided walks and junior ranger programs. You can also visit our partners know as Keweenaw Heritage Sites. You may be able to talk with a solider at Fort Wilkins during the 1840s, go for a hike in the Porcupine Mountains, explore a farm site at Hanka Homestead, visit a lighthouse at Eagle Harbor or ride a train at the Hough County Historical Museum in Lake Linden.
Occasionally, the park, our partners or surrounding communities host special events often with activities geared for kids. They may be ski or bike races, heritage celebrations, musical or theatrical performances, competitions or art shows. Check the Schedule of Events page for more information.
Did You Know?
Despite ups and downs in copper production and prices, the Quincy Mining Company on Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula was able to pay its investors dividends nearly every year from 1862 to 1920, earning it the nickname "Old Reliable." The company closed in 1945, but continued to operate the smelter until 1971.
