When Keweenaw National Historical park was established in 1992, the park's enabling legislation mandated that the park would work with a wide variety of agencies, organizations and individuals to protect and interpret the natural and cultural resources relating to the copper mining story on the Keweenaw Peninsula.

Our formal partners include the Keweenaw National Historical Park Advisory Commission, the Keweenaw Heritage Sites and the Isle Royale and Keweenaw Parks Association.
