Rangers interact with builders and players in a virtual time machine!


Welcome to the Keweenaw NHP Minecraft Project! Keweenaw Minecraft is an re-creation of Keweenaw National Historical Park's Calumet unit and its surroundings in 1917. Builders use historical maps and photos to envision and build the past! Minecraft players, youth, and gamers worldwide can work with us to build and explore the history of this community.

This virtual time machine is a co-creation of gamers around the United States with rangers from the National Park Service! Builders contribute buildings, help each other, and even create videos of their work to share.
