If you have time for only one attraction in the Keweenaw...
This is the one to visit in Michigan's Upper Peninsula!!!

Delaware is an authentic Copper Mine dating back to 1847-87. Eight million pounds of Copper were removed from the five shafts that reached a depth of 1400 feet with ten various levels. The tour takes you to the first level at 110 feet. You'll see veins of pure copper exposed in the walls of the mine along with other geologic points of interest.

At one time this was a very active, high output mine. Seven layers, or strata, with attendant stopes and auxillary shafts, produced a catacomb of passageways and excavations. This educational and interesting attraction is on U.S. 41 just Twelve Miles South of Copper Harbor.
