Keweenaw County Historical Society

Caretakers of the past, stewards of the future


Become a Member

The KCHS has a very healthy membership base – there are over 1,200 individual members, many of whom are Life members. This is eloquent testimony to how gripping the history of our area is! Our members take active roles in many events. It is also eloquent validation of the work that our volunteers have done to create and nurture a dynamic historical society for the smallest county in Michigan. Without our members, the Society would shrivel up and disappear, so we are very grateful for every new and renewing member. Please join us! 

Members automatically receive “The Superior Signal,” the award-winning newsletter published three times each year, and free entry to our museums.

Please use the online form or the print and mail form (below) and thanks for joining the KCHS.

KCHS museum sites and the cottage rentals will be opening for the Summer of 2021, except the Bammert Blacksmith Shop which is closed for repairs.  Sites expect to open buildings during the week of June 20th.  See the museum sites’ webpages for opening dates and hours.

Public events have NOT been scheduled, except for the Woodward Concert in Copper Harbor on September 22nd and Cider Making at Central on September 25th; both events will be held outside.  See the Events/Adventures in History webpage for more information.

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.  This spring, group events held inside community buildings were not allowed.  Therefore, KCHS cancelled the Adventures in History programs for the summer.  

Please check back for updates.
