Keweenaw National Historical Park reopens to visitors

CALUMET -- Keweenaw National Historical Park re-opened to visitors today. Visitors can access all public areas and the Calumet Visitor Center. Keweenaw National Historical Park has been closed since Oct. 1 due to the lapse in Congressional appropriations.

"We are excited and happy to be back at work and welcome visitors to Keweenaw National Historical Park," said Superintendent Mike Pflaum. "Autumn is a particularly special season to enjoy all that the park and our partner sites have to offer."

The park is fully open, including the Calumet Visitor Center located in downtown Calumet. The visitor center is open Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in October. During the winter months, November through April, the visitor center will be open on Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
