On August 9th Quincy Smelter Association sponsors its tour of our facility from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM during Alumni Weekend.  We invite the public and all alumni to partake of this activity during the height of the summer season

Not only do you get to see the smelter, you also get a great view of the campus.

Blacksmithing demonstration by Michigan Tech students. 

Since much of the tour is spent in the buildings, this is a great event on rainy days.

For a full listing of our tour dates for 2014, see a previous post on this site.
The smelter is a former industrial site.  We recommend wearing closed shoes for your safety. 

The Quincy Smelter Association is a non-profit organization authorized to give tours by the owner,  Franklin Township.
