While the central focus of Keweenaw National Historical Park revolves around history of the region's copper mining industry, the reach of the copper resources and the industry extended far beyond the mines and workers.
The park and the Keweenaw Heritage Sites explore four primary stories or themes connected to copper mining. As more resources, research and staffing become available, these stories will be further developed in publications, exhibits, guided programs and web pages.
