KCHS Rental Opportunities

Keweenaw County Historical Society MEMBERSHIP offers two opportunities to stay in an historic Keweenaw County building.

The Light Keeper's Cottage

The Light Keepers Cottage is located in the Eagle Harbor Lighthouse Complex, located on Lighthouse Drive, not far from the swimming beach along M26 in Eagle Harbor.

The Miner's Home

The Miner’s Home is located in the mining community of Central, just off of US 41 north of Phoenix, and within 7 miles of both Eagle River and Eagle Harbor beaches.


The Gift Shop in the Maritime Museum of the Eagle Harbor Light Station Complex will be closing on September 18th.  The KCHS museum sites will be closing on the second weekend of October.   Please see the site and rental webpages for specific dates and operation information.

You may have noticed that our website has a new look. It also has a lot more function for our members. Please log into your profile and make any updates needed to help us keep you informed. You can also renew your membership here!

The Keweenaw County Historical Society’s Board of Directors will follow the COVID-19 Epidemic Orders issued by the State of Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services.  These public health orders are updated as needed, so KCHS may need to change access to buildings and events.
