The Keweenaw National Historical Park came into being in the early 90’s and since then it has had a tremendously positive impact on the local area. According to a recent article in the Daily Mining Gazette the park has had a positive economic impact of over 42 million dollars. This figure includes 18 million for park staff salaries, upkeep, and operational expenses with the remaining 24 million representing the acquisition of new properties to enhance the park, preservation efforts for local history, as well as contributions to local heritage site partners. The historical park has 55 partners in the local community and the park is spread throughout a few local towns. Please feel free to check out the Daily Mining Gazette article for more details.
