In the city of Hancock in the Keweenaw Peninsula, is the Quincy Smelter, part of what’s left of the old Quincy Mine. It's the only remaining copper smelter in the Lake Superior. It was built in 1898 by the Quincy Mining Company to process ore from local copper mines and ceased operation in 1972.

This place is creepy enough during the day, as you can see in the photo gallery below. The smelter is the last of its kind in the entire country with lots of history seeped into the walls, rooms, and wood, waiting to greet – or scare – you when you visit. Are there real ghosts? Of course there are. Sure there were accidental deaths here, as with most U.P. mine locations…so be on your guard.

Tours are avaiable.....A roadtrip to the Keweenaw for the experience will be worth the drive!
