Keweenaw National Historical Park

?There! On the riverbank, sir! The great copper boulder before our very eyes? the tales we have heard all these years bore the truth!? The first Michigan state geologist and renowned surveyor, Douglass Houghton, let the moment wash over him. The Jesuit tales dating back to 1672 are finally confirmed on this 1830 geological expedition. ?A great discovery, indeed, finding the famed Ontonagon Boulder, but is it truly evidence of mineral riches in this wild, remote country that the Indians call Keweenaw?? thought Houghton.
