A shaft house lighting dedication is a unique way to remember a special date or occasion or to honor someone important in our lives. The shaft house, an icon of the Copper Country, is a guiding light looking out over the quiet towns of Hancock and Houghton, and a reminder to all to pause for a moment of quiet reflection and serenity in our busy lives. For more information about shaft house lighting, call 906-482-3101 or visit our online Gift Ship.

The adventure continues as you approach the portal of the Quincy Mine East Adit (1895). The adit is approximately 15 feet high and 15 feet wide and is lighted for the entire 2000' walk for the convenience of our visitors.
