Quincy Mine Tours
America's first mining boom began as prospectors and speculators rushed to mine deposits of native copper along the Keweenaw Peninsula. For 99 years Quincy mined these deposits and its impressive string of dividends earned it the name of "Old Reliable". Today, the Quincy Mine Hoist Association offers tours of this National Historic Landmark. All tours include the No.2 shaft-rockhouse, the museum in the historic 1892 Hoist House, and the world's largest steam powered hoist which serviced the Quincy Mine's No.2 shaft that reached 9,260 feet on the incline into the earth. The mid-west's only cogwheel tram will transport visitors to the east adit of the mine for underground tours to explore a 2,400 foot section of the seventh level to see what life was like for mine workers and learns about the changes in mining processes throughout history. Many other mining artifacts are available to view on the site, as well as a gift shop in the restored 1894 Supply House.
