EXPERIENCE OUR NATION'S FIRST MINERAL BOOM

The Quincy Mine is located in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Mining operations have been closed since 1945, but the site is preserved as a cooperating site of the Keweenaw National Historical Park.

The Quincy Mine properties are owned and operated by the Quincy Mine Hoist Association, Inc., a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation created to preserve and educate the public about this largely forgotten chapter of our American heritage.

Quincy Falcon Cam

This view is brought to you by the Copper Country Audubon Society, Pasty.com, and the Quincy Mine Hoist Association. Due to work being performed on the Portage Lake Lift Bridge, the peregrine falcons will need a new home, and we hope that this location will prove attractive to the raptors.
