So...what IS curling, exactly? 🥌 It’s a sport that even longtime #Keweenaw residents often have a hard time explaining. Stop wondering and come discover #curling for yourself! Drop into the #historic C&H Drill House (right next to the Calumet Colosseum) from 12-3pm today, and get a live curling demo from the Copper Country Curling Club. These dedicated curling enthusiasts are the perfect people to introduce you to this quirky, intense and uniquely #CopperCountry sport. #ILoveCalumet #MainStreetCalumet #WeLoveWinter 📸 courtesy of Copper Country Curling Club

The visitors, partners, volunteers, and staff of Keweenaw National Historical Park and the Keweenaw Heritage Sites thank Congressional Representative Jack Bergman for his kind words in the letter he read into the Congressional Record in honor of the park's 25th #Anniversary . #Keweenaw #KeweenawNPS #MidwestNPS #KeweenawHeritageSites Expand for text . . . . . Congressional Record Proceedings and Debates of the 115th Congress, First Session House of Representatives Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Keweenaw National Historical Park Rep. Jack Bergman of Michigan, In the House or Representatives, November 8, 2017 MR. SPEAKER, It is my honor to recognize the Keweenaw National Historical Park upon the occasion of its 25th Anniversary. Through committed preservation and community engagement, the Keweenaw National Historical Park has become an indispensable part of Northern Michigan. For over 7000 years, the Keweenaw area has been a source of natural resources and cultural enrichment. Native peoples first utilized its easily accessible and workable copper to create tools and items for trade. Later, copper became the center of growing industries and cosmopolitan communities in the Keweenaw. This rich history is preserved through the hard work of the rangers and volunteers at the Keweenaw National Historical Park. The celebration of the park’s anniversary is the perfect recognition of efforts to preserve our history, culture, and beautiful landscapes. Today, the park continues to raise the bar of innovation through programs and partnerships with state and local governments, private businesses, and nonprofit organizations. Its steadfast work has helped give the people of the Keweenaw Peninsula and all of the Upper Peninsula a sense of unity and common heritage. MR. SPEAKER, I congratulate the Keweenaw National Historical Park for its 25 years of success and community investment. Michiganders can take immense pride in knowing that the First District is home to such an important institution of historical, cultural and environmental preservation. On behalf of my constituents, I wish the Keweenaw National Historical Park all the best in its future endeavors.

The Keweenaw, this place is nothing short of MAGICAL. Yesterday I took an educators workshop and learned about the history of Quincy mine. Nature, culture, science, history, economy, architecture, archeology....I’m geeking out on all the new things I learned and all the knowledge I still need to discover. Still blinking and wondering how I ended up living in this beautiful place when it was just years ago I didn’t even know it existed. #findyourpark #keweenawnps #quincymine #coppercountry #puremichigan #906 #keweenaw

Journeying back to the UP, we visited the Calumet Visitor Center of Keweenaw National Historical Park, one of twenty-one heritage sites on the Keweenaw Peninsula. The visitor center is located in the historical Union Building in Calumet, previously a Lodge Hall for the Masons and the Odd Fellows. We explored the three story museum which explained the history of the copper industry on the peninsula. . . . . #masonictemple #unionbuilding @keweenawnps #keweenawnps #midwestnps #findyourpark #nps101 #thenationalparkspass @usinterior #usparksandmonuments #calumetmi #keweenaw #keweenawpeninsula #coppercountry #lakesuperior #lakesuperiorcircletour #greatlakes #greatlakestate #upperpeninsula #uptravel #yooper #michigan #michiganawesome #travelmi #discovermichigan #exploremichigan #puremichigan #igersmichigan #igersmidwest #roadtrip #roadtrip2017 #desiluski
