The Quincy Smelter Association hosts tours monthly so visitors
such as yourself can see the only intact copper smelter from the
American Industrial Revolution around the turn of the 20th Century.
See much of the original machinery used to turn ore into copper
ingots. Not only can you see the original equipment from the
smelter's construction in 1898. But our guides will point out the
major changes in the Great Expansion of 1920. We look forward to
showing this and much more.
Since much of the tour is spent in the buildings, this is a great
event even on rainy days.
Directions: Turn right after crossing the bridge on to M-26, go
1/4 mile to the sign on the right.
The smelter is a former industrial site. We recommend wearing
closed shoes for your safety.
