Travel Tips for Hancock

Temple Jacob

by yooperprof

Isn't it interesting that this most Finnish of towns in the Upper Peninsula is also home to its most attractive and interesting synagogue?

Hancock was a flourishing community at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century, and as such had a small but significant Jewish population. They built Temple Jacob in 1912, employing the services of architect Henry Ottenheimer to design this interesting and eccentric Georgian-influenced box.

It's located on MI-26, just east of the Portage Lake Lift Bridge.

Finnish Lutheran Church (closed)

by yooperprof

The old Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church was a proud presence in Hancock for 8 decades, overlooking the community from its hillside location on Reservation Street.

The structure was dedicated in 1889, and housed religious services until 1966 when the congregation was merged with a nearby Swedish ELCA group.

Town Hall and Fire Hall

by yooperprof

Like many other small towns, Hancock combines "City Hall" and the main fire station in one building. What a good example of Finnish practicality!

The building is justly on the Michigan Register of Historic Places: "The Marquette firm of Charlton, Gilbert and Dewar designed Hancock's Town Hall and Fire Hall. Completed in 1899, the building housed city offices, the fire department, and the marshall's office and jail. Built of Jacobsville sandstone with stepped and curved gables, it exhibits Richardsonian Romanesque, Dutch and Flemish influences." So says the historic placque out front!

Finlandia University - St. Matthew Chapel

by yooperprof

Finlandia's original name was "Suomi College," "Suomi" being the name of the people and their land. It was founded in the late 19th century, when the territory of Finland was still part of the Russian empire, and a very significant part of Finnish national identity was wrapped up with the religion of the people, that of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. Today, a considerable portion of the Finnish-American population in the Upper Peninsula is still quite devout. (But not all.)

St. Matthew Chapel is a new addition to the Finlandia campus, having been completed only in the year 2000. It reflects the continuity of the Finnish Lutheran Church and its influence on this region.
