The Quincy Smelter site in Ripley, part of the Keweenaw National Historical Park but owned by Franklin Township, was open for tours last weekend. Although I’ve been busy hitting the books and writing the first chapter of my thesis (thus not updating this site very often), I was able to swing down and catch an afternoon tour last Saturday. Below you will find a few samples of photos from that day. For more information about touring the Quincy Smelter site please visit the Quincy Smelter Association’s blog. Tours are typically offered sporadically throughout the summer and fall. The last time to see the tour this year is on October 12 from 12-4. Tours begin every hour on the hour. I hope to resume my “Today in the Strike” posts by next week.
