Another successful season for the Quincy Smelter Association. Every month we had many visitors for each tour day.
The major event for the association was the change in ownership from the Franklin Township to the Advisory Commission affliliated with the Keweenaw National Historical Park. The Advisory Commission is the current owner. When a number of details are cleared up, the smelter will be transferred to the Park Service.
In the mean time we have an agreement with the Advisory Commission to continue running the tours for the foreseeable future.
We enjoy giving these tours. Visitors at times can bring information from their past connections with the smelter. Sometimes former employees. Sometimes relatives of those employees. And there are a lot of knowledgeable people who add to our information about the smelter.
We will re-open in June, 2015. Our schedule has not been set for 2015. When it is, we will post it here and on our facebook page.
We hope you enjoy the holidays and the winter snow.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.
