CALUMET -- Due to unforeseen circumstances, Keweenaw National Historical Park is adjusting the program for this week’s Fourth Thursday in History event.
National Park Service Ranger Lynette Webber will be presenting "The People’s Portage: Early Travel on the Keweenaw Waterway." This program replaces the scheduled talk, "Copper Country Streetcars," which the NPS (National Park Service) intends to present at a later date.
The event will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014, at the National Park Service’s Calumet Visitor Center, located at 98 Fifth Street in Calumet. It is free and open to the public.
The Fourth Thursday in History series arranges public presentations on important aspects of Copper Country and regional history, including techniques for historic preservation. Presentations are scheduled in venues throughout the Keweenaw Peninsula, particularly at historic sites associated with specific topics. They are free and open to the public.
