Great local history, and park staff have great good insights on what to do and where a family should see. Lots of history, not just on mining. Interesting architecture in the buildings and surrounding community.

This park designation is an overlay of many sites on the far tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. There are scenic drives, towns, parks, harbors highlighting the peoples and industrial heritage of this beautiful region.

This is centered in Calumet, but there are many places to visit around the area. You get a great sense of local history and of the huge mining efforts in the region. Well preserved and documented.

The Keneewaw Nat'l Historical Park itself covers 100s of square miles. The center in Calumet has a good display of artifacts and information to give a hint at life in an isolated mining area.
