Pleasantly surprised to know the US Park Service has a presence in Copper Country. The facility has been beautifully restored. The hardwood floors were very well done. The Park Service staff and volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable.

Stopped t ask some questions about the Coppetown museum and the lad was very helpful. She not only answered my questions, but gave me some great tips on other things to see and do in Calumet.
