In celebration of Michigan Tech Winter Carnival, the Quincy Mine Hoist Association is once again offering special winter tours! Explore the Quincy location in winter and learn how the Keweenaw community is a leader in the advancement of geoheritage within the United States!
Tour times are Friday and Saturday (February 7 & 8), at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Tours will start promptly at the Quincy Gift Shop parking lot (49750 US Highway 41, in the shadow of the #2 shafthouse) and last approximately two hours.
