Quincy Mine Office
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, administrators of the successful Quincy Mining Company occupied this stately Jacobsville sandstone building. Today, its office spaces are leased to private enterprises. Future plans call for both an interior and exterior restoration to return it to its former historic appearance. The building is not open to the public at this time.
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.
