The Quincy Smelter Association is happy to announce its tour schedule for this year.
We look forward to showing visitors such as yourself a prominent part of the heritage of Keweenaw's copper industry.
See an intact copper smelter with our guides taking you through many of the buildings that makes up this facility. See the huge furnace where 50,000 pounds of copper ore was melted. A large circular casting machine. Pumps and more pumps! And much more.

Unless otherwise noted, tours are from 11 AM to 3 PM on the designated Saturdays.
We recommend visitors wear closed shoes and avoid sandals or other open and loose fitting foot wear.
Our tours are approximately one hour long.
As part of our fundraising efforts, we have high quality T-shirts for sale. One is a sharp dark blue with white lettering with the neat Quincy Smelter logo. The other shirt is a light tan with a vintage photo of the smelter plus lettering. Come on a tour and leave well dressed!
