Welcome to the Keweenaw Peninsula, where you'll find a warm, family-oriented community with excellent schools, a thriving arts scene and world-class year-round outdoor recreation.
UP Health System provides comprehensive healthcare for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan through its three hospitals and many physician practices. UP Health System – Portage has been serving the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan since 1896. It provides a broad range of services at its 36-bed hospital, which is home to the state's first Level III ASC-verified trauma center and emergency department; a 60-bed senior living community; and various physician practices and outlying clinics.
Hancock brings together small-town values and cosmopolitan diversity. Combined with the natural beauty of the area, it is a perfect place for people to explore their many and varied interests. The Keweenaw is home to two universities — Michigan Technological University and Finlandia University — and the community is influenced and benefits from the diversity, culture and high standards of living contributed to our small community. The Keweenaw Peninsula is often called “Copper Country” because of the amount of natural “float” copper found beneath the surface. In fact, at 90 percent pure, much of this copper is the purest in the world. The 19th century copper boom brought many immigrants whose traditions are still a part of the area today. Art galleries overflow with exhibits and fine arts centers bring music, theatrical, comedic and intellectual acts year-round.
The Keweenaw is a four-season wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts. Camping, fishing and hunting are popular year-round, and hundreds of miles in trail systems are developed for off-road motorized recreation such as ATVing and snowmobiling. There are hundreds of miles of trails for the avid silent sports culture, including hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing and Nordic skiing. And water sports beckon from the shores of Lake Superior.
