    Copper magnate  (not to be confused with Andre)

    Favorite thing: Swiss-born copper mining pioneer, executive of the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company from 1871 to 1910. The base of the sculpture carries the inscription "A man of science who developed a great mine and wrought the welfare of its people." The seated bronze was made by Paul Wayland Bartlett (1865-1925), a student of the great Rodin. It's located at the headquarters building of the Keweenaw National Historic Park, just off Red Jacket Road.

    St. Anne's Church and Museum

    Favorite thing: Pick up information about the Keweenaw National Historical Park at the visitor center on U.S. 41, as well as a brochure for a walking tour of the areas historic commercial buildings. Check out my Houghton, Michigan Off the Beaten Path pages for other things to do around the Copper Country area.

    Below is the official web address for the Keweenaw National Historical Park.

    Fondest memory: Walking around town to look at the historic buildings, especially the St. Anne’s Church. Listening to Detroit Symphony Orchestra at the Calumet Theatre.

    Favorite thing: Fill up in L'Anse or Baraga, right on your way... 30 miles south of Houghton on Keweenaw Bay.

    Fondest memory: After living in lower Michigan, I thank God I'm able to actually live up here! All of the western U.P. is special, but the Laurium/Calumet area also has the great history!

    Favorite thing: The people are very friendly and helpful, you can walk up to anyone and ask directions or recommendations for local attractions and they will go out of their way to help you.

    Fondest memory: The air here in the U.P is very pure, when I am away from the area I notice the difference.
