Keweenaw Heritage Center at St. Anne’s
Opening Doors to our Heritage
Musical Mondays showcase different groups of local talent. We have polkas, country music, ethnic songs and everything in between during these programs. While some like to just sit and enjoy the music, others get up and dance. Check the summer schedule for more details.
The mission of the Keweenaw Heritage Center is to preserve and interpret the culture and heritage of the Copper Country through the preservation of buildings, development of exhibits and other educational activities. The Heritage Center is unique as it highlights the social aspect of mining community life. The building is used as a museum, educational facility, for musical programs and is a venue for meetings, weddings and receptions and other gatherings.
The Center has been adapted to serve as an educational and cultural center. It is available for the celebration of life events and for meetings and conferences.
In 1994, after several years of negotiating with the owner, a group of local citizens raised the funds necessary for the Charter Township of Calumet to purchase the former St. Anne’s Church.
To promote long-term stability, an endowment fund has been created at the Keweenaw Community Foundation. Contributions to the endowment fund are tax-deductible. This is a building that can thank people who value heritage and work toward preserving it.
Located at the head of downtown Calumet’s commercial district, the Keweenaw Heritage Center, formerly St. Anne’s Church, is a pivotal structure of the Calumet Downtown National Historic Landmark District. The KHC is a cooperating site of the Keweenaw National Historical Park.
