Keweenaw County Historical Society

Caretakers of the past, stewards of the future


The Miner's Home

Keweenaw County Historical Society MEMBERSHIP offers opportunities to stay in an historic Keweenaw County building. 

Step back in time and discover where the term "homey" came from.
Except for a few minor alterations to provide modern amenities, this house is a perfect example of an early industrial age workingman's home. Located in historic Central, there is plenty to do and explore here. A stay in the Miner's Home is the next best thing to a time machine to experience our local history.

Notice to Renters

KCHS museum sites and the cottage rentals will be opening for the Summer of 2021, except the Bammert Blacksmith Shop which is closed for repairs.  Sites expect to open buildings during the week of June 20th.  See the museum sites’ webpages for opening dates and hours.

Public events have NOT been scheduled, except for the Woodward Concert in Copper Harbor on September 22nd and Cider Making at Central on September 25th; both events will be held outside.  See the Events/Adventures in History webpage for more information.

The Keweenaw County Historical Society’s Board of Directors will follow the COVID-19 Epidemic Orders issued by the State of Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services.  These public health orders are updated as needed, so KCHS may need to change access to buildings and events.  This spring, group events held inside community buildings were not allowed.  Therefore, KCHS cancelled the Adventures in History programs for the summer.  

Please check back for updates.
